Physical Education

Course content:

During Key Stage 4 we follow the National Curriculum, though the focus is now on developing the students’ personal and social skills. While team sports and physical activity have been associated with improved self-esteem, better nutrition and less smoking and drug abuse among children, recent studies suggest that fostering leadership skills and empathy in adolescent children may reinforce healthy lifestyle behaviours.
