The core PE curriculum allows students to focus on physical, social, cognitive and fitness development through participation in a broad and challenging range of sports and physical activities. Taught activities include:
Football, Rugby, Netball, Handball, Trampolining, Table Tennis, Badminton, Basketball, Fitness, Gymnastics, Dance, Cricket, Athletics, Rounders and Orienteering.
Core PE also aims to develop students’ understanding of the benefits of participating in physical activity, including the importance of being physically active for sustained periods of time. Students are encouraged to be self-motivated and develop key transferrable skills such as resilience, teamwork, communication, leadership and adaptability. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities will also build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Every member of the The Academy at Shotton Hall PE department strives to provide an outstanding PE experience which inspires, challenges and motivates all students, through innovative and passionate practice.
The PE department also offer an array of extra-curricular activities which either mirror the curriculum or provide opportunities for students to be active in a wider range of sports.
