What we offer (the curriculum)

To develop both healthy minds and bodies through a PE curriculum that engages and motivates learners of all abilities. We believe all pupils can find their own pathway to active and healthier lives and aim to give them the skills and knowledge to do so in both a physical, social, and academic capacity. Competition, leadership, and high expectations are used to push and inspire learners of all abilities to be resilient and the very best they can be and lead successful lives.
