We believe very strongly in the importance of sport and exercise as the benefits of leading an active and healthy lifestyle are endless.
Regular participation in exercise or sport not only improves health levels, confidence levels and social relationships but studies show that it also leads to higher levels of academic attainment.
For these reasons, the Physical Education curriculum is very broad and offers learners as as many different activities as possible during the physical education lessons timetabled for learners each week. During this time learners are introduced to new sports, they cover all aspects of the national Physical Education syllabus, they acquire new techniques and refine skills already owned. This approach is regardless of whether Sport and Leisure has been chosen as a pathway.
In addition to this, we present learners with rich extra-curricular programmes after college which allows them to extend their interest and participation in sport and exercise. Clubs range from social activities where learners meet new friends within a healthy environment to more serious societies for those wishing to form a team and compete against other schools and colleges within the borough. Regardless of where our learners fall within this continuum there is something for everyone and we encourage as many students as possible to take advantage of this and take steps to adopt and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
Please take a look at the Extra Curricular Activities booklet (below) to get a flavour of the sports, clubs and activities available to our students.
