Physical Education

Exam Board: OCR

The GCSE Physical Education course may be followed in addition to the core PE programme that all pupils must follow.

The course is broken down into three main sections

If you decide to take this course then you must be prepared to perform a variety of sports and activities and attend extra-curricular clubs. The GCSE PE course leads directly onto AS and A2 courses in Physical Education as well as vocational courses and should be undertaken if you are interested in acquiring detailed sporting knowledge and developing your own performance to a high level.

Students who progress the most on this course are members of 1 or 2 sports clubs outside of the school set up.   Also competing for school is a valuable tool for further enhancing the skills learnt. 


60% examination, 30% practical and 10% controlled assessment.
