Physical Education

Striving for a healthy, active and successful future’ by giving students the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact on their own physical health and well-being. Students will experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices.

The National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all students:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

  • are physically active for sustained periods of time

Key Stage 4 - BTEC Sport

PE and Sport have a strong reputation at Broadlands Academy.

We offer the BTEC Sport qualification at KS4 and believe it gives a strong foundation for anyone wishing to go on to study sports and training at college and beyond.

The course has four units:

  • Personal training for fitness

  • Leadership and coaching

  • Practical sport

  • Components of Fitness and Principles of Training

Although you do not get assessed on your practical ability, approximately 50% of the lessons are practical, learning through being physically active rather than in the classroom.
