Physical Education

The department strongly believe that young people should be given the knowledge to help them lead a healthy active lifestyle whilst in school and in the future.

Physical Education has a unique contribution to make to the total education of an individual. At Ellesmere College, we aim to maintain and stimulate pupils' interest and enjoyment in an extensive range of physical activities. We offer all our pupils the opportunity to develop physical skills, fitness and to enable gifted games players and athletes to pursue their chosen sport to high levels of achievement.

All pupils at Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 will have one double PE lesson per week, which is 70 minutes in duration.

The PE curriculum ensures that all pupils follow as wide a range of activities as possible.

We offer both GCSE and A Level PE, and BTEC as examination courses. There are very popular subjects. They enable pupils to experience and promote the value of exercise and healthy living. Furthermore, planning and evaluating sports performances, pupils increase their knowledge of physical activity.
