Developing Interpersonal Skills
Our aim is to ensure that every pupil enjoys their PE lessons and is given the opportunity to experience a wide range of sporting activities in a broad curriculum. Pupils will not only improve practically but will also develop their social and emotional wellbeing, improving personal qualities such as pride in their performance, competitiveness, endurance, respect and self-confidence and esteem.
The PE curriculum allows pupils to experience a wide range of sports. Pupils complete half-termly activity blocks in the following areas; Fun Club, Cricket, Football, Hockey, Outdoor Education, Tag Rugby, Softball, Volleyball, Fitness, Netball, Rounder's, Rugby and Trampolining.
There is an extensive extra-curricular programme that allows pupils to participate recreationally or competitively and represent the school in local, regional and national fixtures.
The PE department organise a number of residential and sporting enrichment trips to further enhance the experiences that can be gained such as:
Professional fixtures to watch: Cheshire Phoenix Basketball, Sale Sharks Rugby, England Netball, Women's Football, British Gymnastics, Wimbledon and Dance Performances.
Sports Tours: Netball and Football, Ski Trip, New York Dance and Art Trip.
Outdoor Education: Year 7 Conwy Trip, Year 9 Oakland's, Year 10 Camp and Canoe River Expedition, Year 10 Welsh Peaks Mountain Challenge.
For pupils who show outstanding commitment to sport and represent the school in three or more activities they are awarded Junior/Senior Sporting Colours, and for those students who have excellent leadership skills in PE, pupils can also be nominated as a PE ambassador to support local primary school sports festivals
