Sports Studies

Faculty: Sports Studies

Head of Faculty: Mr L Coupland


The Physical Education faculty uphold a true ‘commitment to excellence’ in all that we do. We aim to provide pupils with many different experiences within a diverse and engaging curriculum that challenges them both physically and academically.  We strive for pupils to be responsible and independent and be able to participate safely and fairly.

In Sports Studies we provide learners with the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge about different types of sport and physical activity, skills development, and sports leadership to their own practical performance. They understand the contemporary issues in sport and will develop an appreciation of the importance of sport locally and nationally, different ways of being involved in sport and of how this shapes the sports industry. Sports Studies will develop pupils’ independence, confidence and awareness of the role sport plays in the world we live in today.
