Key Stage 3

Aims

The aim at KS3 is to deliver a broad and deep curriculum to all students. A number of varied sports will be taught throughout eight week blocks. After each block students will be assessed on their practical ability (60%) and their understanding of a theoretical strand (40%).

Year 7

Students will study sports such as Rugby, Netball and Health Related Fitness depending on the time of year. The theory aspects covered will be Bones & Muscles, Components of Fitness, The Cardiovascular System and Fitness Testing.

Year 8

Within Year 8, students will get to experience Handball, Gymnastics, Badminton and Table Tennis to name a few. A leadership strand is also introduced to enhance students’ ability and confidence in leading sports activities. The theory aspects follow the same topics as year 7, Bones & Muscles, Components of Fitness, The Cardiovascular System and Fitness Testing however the content is increased to help cement understanding.

Students will benefit from the use of the Academy’s Fitness Suite plus sports including Softball, Ultimate Frisbee and Problem Solving.

Year 9 Core

Students will continue to study a breadth of sporting activities and leadership. Strike and Field activities are introduced which stray slightly from traditional sports. Rowing and Flag Football will also be taught.

Year 9 Option

Students who opt for PE in Year 9 will have two hours extra. Within this allotted time, lessons will typically be one hour theory and one hour practical. Students will work on many different factors of PE and the sports industry with a big focus on Sports Leadership. This will assist in preparing students so they are ready for the BTEC Sports qualification in Key Stage 4.

 

Key Stage 4

Students in Years 10 and 11 will participate in a number of sporting activities.  When they enter Year 10 they get to select a PE pathway.  They will opt between a ‘Team Performance’ and ‘Individual Performance’ pathway.  Students studying BTEC Sport or play regular sport will be encouraged to join the ‘Team’ pathway.  Students who enjoy the leisure side of PE will be encouraged to select the ‘Individual’ pathway.

Students will benefit from the use of the Academy’s Fitness Suite plus sports including Softball, Ultimate Frisbee and Problem Solving.
