How will I learn?

The Department expects all students to take an active interest in this subject and regular participation is an expectation unless students have a medical reason for not doing so. GCSE sports tops or the school regulation kit must be worn. The blue/black school rugby / hockey top or the black fleece should be worn for outdoor activities. These are available at the school shop.
This course is designed to give students the opportunity to carry on their interest in sport and encourage them to pursue a physical activity in their own time whilst maintaining an appropriate level of fitness which could also lead to future employment.
