Physical Education (PE)

In Year 7 you will have 5 PE lessons over a fortnight.

You will do PE in class with one other class and will be a single gender group. Across the year all classes will do the same sports but in different orders!  Each half term you will do two sports or activities, so in total this will be 12 sports that you get to do.  Typically every half term, one activity will be indoors and one outdoors.


Football, Netball, Rugby, Basketball, Gymnastics, Dance, Badminton, Fitness, Athletics, Cricket, Rounders, Tennis.

PE demands you to be organised in bringing your kit to every lesson.  A normal lesson will see you lining up on the yard outside and waiting to be greeted by your teacher who will escort you to your changing rooms.  Once changed you will go to the area where your sport takes place and do a lesson including skills and games before being given enough time to change again afterwards.

Extra Curricular

The Extra Curricular clubs on offer change across the year depending on the sporting season.  In the winter football, netball, badminton and basketball typically take place then we transition to tennis, rounders, cricket and athletics.  Clubs normally take place at lunchtime or after school.

If there is enough interest in a sport to make a school team then we will play matches and tournaments against other local schools.  Occasionally there are even competitions during school! 

Equipment List

  • All students need a full PE kit including a Heart of England tshirt, shorts or skort, leggings or tracksuit bottoms, football socks, a jumper.
  • Additionally you will need trainers, a hair band, ankle/sports socks for non-games sports, shin pads a gumshield and football boots.

  • No Jewellery is permitted during PE lessons and hair must be tied back.

Behavioural Expectations

In PE we have the highest expectations regarding behaviour to allow your lessons to take place and stay safe.  Students need to listen and follow instructions at all times and failure to do so means you will not participate.
