Our aim is to raise the awareness, knowledge and abilities of all students, in relation to the health and social benefits of sport. We want to achieve this by offering as full a range of sports as possible to both KS3 and KS4 pupils. The centre provides facilities for a number of sports, however we also use offsite providers and facilities to assist and increase the range of sports we can offer:
Our ultimate goal is for all students to enjoy sport and exercise, and equip them with the skills to maintain an active lifestyle into adulthood.
The centre now offers various qualifications in Physical Education to KS4 pupils, including:
GCSE Physical Education provides students with the knowledge and understanding of how to live a healthy and active lifestyle, enabling them to make informed choices about their own physical development. Students can choose from a variety of roles and activities in which to participate in physical activity.
Students will learn how to analyse and evaluate performance and suggest effective plans for improvement.
This qualification is designed to help learners understand the skills and knowledge needed to work in the sports industry, which they'll be encouraged to demonstrate through participation in a wide range of sport and active leisure activities.
The centre also offers the Prince’s Trust XL Club to KS4 pupils, XL clubs help 13 to 19-year olds to develop the skills and confidence they need to reach a positive future, through relevant, engaging and informal learning.
The xl club course is split into five modules:
