During the two year GCSE PE course it is essential students develop their practical skills both in and out of school at extra-curricular clubs and at external sports clubs.

The PE department holds a GCSE theory workshop during Year 11 and it is expected that students attend this in preparation for their theory examinations, if they are requested.  A core textbook and revision guide is provided to every student at the start of the course.
