AS Physical Education
BTEC National Award in Sport

The major aim of the LSA PE department is to deliver an extensive accreditation curriculum which allows all pupils to access a wide range of activities, skills and knowledge of various sports, whilst increasing individual’s levels of physical fitness. At the same time we are developing life skills for lifelong learning, preparing tomorrow’s citizens today.

We aim to provide an enjoyable, satisfying, broad and balanced programme, with opportunities for all pupils to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually through well structured activities.

We aim to meet the needs of individual pupils, encouraging active participation by all as performers, leaders, observers and officials both in practical and theory lessons.

We will aim to develop a culture of confidence, tolerance, trust and appreciation of ones own and others strengths and weaknesses as an integral part of the learning process.

The programme offered together with an awareness of leisure opportunities in the community, will develop those skills and attitudes conducive to a lifelong involvement in an active and healthy lifestyle.  It will also allow pathways to excellence, through the enhancement of existing links within sporting bodies and local sporting communities.

Hockey, Fitness, Rugby, Netball, Football, Gymnastics, Basketball, Badminton, Volleyball, Rounders, Cricket, Athletics, Tennis, Trampolining, Softball and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.
