Physical Education

Welcome to the Kingsmead School PE Learning Team.

At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 & 8), students study a broad and balanced curriculum which includes modules of work in Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Fitness and Games. Participating in such a wide range of activities develops competence and confidence and enables our students to succeed.

At Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 & 11), students continue to study Games, Fitness Athletics and Gymnastics, but are given increasingly more choice and variety in their programme. This allows each student to discover what they like to do and what their aptitudes are which enables them to make informed choices about lifelong physical activity. Students who choose to study the subject at exam level can follow either the AQA GCSE PE or the Edexcel Btec Sport courses.

Students are enriched through a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. The PE department provides lunchtime and after school opportunities to participate in clubs on a recreational basis. It also runs School teams in many major Games, Cross country and Athletics and competes regularly in both the Taunton and District leagues as well as the County cup competitions.

The learning team has organised the opportunity for students to participate in House sport through the School’s Challenge Days.
