KS3

In KS3 students develop knowledge, tactics and skills in a range of sporting related activities. As a department we look to build upon the fundamental movement skills developed in primary school. We do this through a range of invasion games, aesthetic activities and racket sports. Additionally, in the summer term we provide students with the chance to learn and play in striking and fielding activities as well as athletics. All KS3 students have two hours of PE a week.

KS4

In years 10 and 11 students engage in physical activity to help create lifelong healthy habits. Students are given the autonomy to pick and choose the sports/activities they take part in. Staff provide guidance and structure to these lessons while allowing students the opportunity to independently lead, officiate and manage their activity.

Students will have the opportunity to change activities after each half-term.

At Woodbridge, we offer a range of examination courses in Physical Education to suit our wide variety of students.
