PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE) AT KING ECGBERT SCHOOL
At Key Stage 3 students have 2 lessons of core PE. The KS3 curriculum is carefully mapped to ensure continuity, progression and balanced coverage of the programmes of study. At Year 7 students are taught in their form groups so are mixed gender. Year 8-9 students are separated into girls’ and boys’ sets. The groups are mixed ability and many will have students who are Gifted and Talented others will include students with specific learning needs.
At Key Stage 4 all students have 1 lesson of core PE, but can opt for either BTEC Sport Level 2 or GCSE PE both of which are an additional 2 or 3 lessons a week usually one practical and one theory.
Both A Level PE (AS and A2) and BTEC Level 3 Sub are offered in the sixth form, these courses are very popular. In sixth form we are a member of the South Yorkshire Sixth Form Football League and we play fixtures home and away most Wednesdays.
- GCSE and A Level – AQA
