GCSE Physical Education

Option Subject

Introduction

For those students who have enjoyed Physical Education in Years 7–9 and achieved a good level of competence, we offer the opportunity to study the subject as a GCSE.        

The new PE GCSE seeks to build on the skills and experience gained in the lower part of the School.

The course has moved closer to sports science covering new topics including sports psychology and movement analysis. The content is covered by two exams and a practical assessment.

Practical performance in different physical activities is essential to completing the course.

As the world of sport moves forward in the 21st Century, we endeavour to echo it in our teaching of the subject utilising the School’s technology and strength and conditioning suite.

Beyond GCSE

This course is the ideal start to sports science based higher and further education courses, including the Cambridge Technical Course or an A level.

This GCSE also lends itself well to Biology, Media Studies, Physics and Psychology.

This course is ideal for any passionate sports person who is looking to gain a greater insight to theirs and other’s performance.
