Key Stage 4
In both Year 10 and 11 students have either one or two hours of core PE each week. They participate in the areas above plus other activities which include: volleyball and use of the leisure centre.
In Year 10/11 students will be given the opportunity to take the Sports Leaders Award – Level 1 and the Dance Leaders Award during core PE, if timetabling allows.
Key Stage 4 GCSE PE and BTEC First Certificate in Sport are both offered within the options programme and are very popular choices with the students. Both courses have practical and theoretical elements and enable students to choose a route that suits them. In both courses the students also take the Sports Leaders Award Level 1.
Key Stage 5 As part of The Vale Academy Sixth Form the department offers both the A Level PE and the BTEC Nationals in Sport.
We have a variety of sports ambassadors who try to promote an inclusive sports curriculum and the Olympic ethos. Lewis Redhead – Platinum Ambassador, Malika Garwell – Gold Ambassador and Ryan Thompson – Adistar.
