WHY STUDY PHYSICAL EDUCATION?
Physical Education seeks to give young people a positive approach towards physical activity and recognise its contribution to their personal, social, physical and emotional well-being.
WHAT WILL I LEARN ABOUT IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION?
At Key Stage 4, GCSE Physical Education theory is divided into two sections: fitness and body systems, which covers topics such as applied Anatomy and Physiology and movement analysis. Health and performance covers topics such as health and wellbeing. In the practical area you will learn the skills and tactics relevant to sport. There will be opportunities to participate in new activities.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SKILLS I WILL GAIN?
You will develop a range of skills that will also be transferable i.e. the ability to work with other people (in teams), the ability to enhance decision-making skills, the ability to evaluate movement and develop physical skills in a range of sporting activities.
