Welcome to PE

Welcome to KHCA Physical Education

Our vision is to inspire all students to acquire a love for sport, a passion to be physically active and to develop a life long healthy and active lifestyle. We aim to provide a first class teaching environment where staff and students work hard together to secure knowledge required to achieve success.

The Physical Education team are extremely committed to develop knowledge of performance, tactics and strategies as well as fostering creativity and evaluation skills in practical lessons. We want our curriculum to be a tool by which students can excel practically but also gain valuable life skills through team work, leadership and officiating. It is paramount that we foster an environment where students feel safe to ‘have a go’ and which also encourages enthusiasm to excel at the highest level and grasp the opportunity to represent the academy. Physical Education lessons will provide the opportunity for students to engage in high levels of physical activity and become highly educated about how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

In GCSE , Cambridge National Sports Studies and A Level Physical Education we aspire for students to gain the knowledge and understanding to achieve personal outstanding success to maximise their choices in further education and life. Scholars will engage in exciting theoretical concepts in sport aswell as widening their knowledge and minds beyond the exam specification experiencing an enriched curriculum which includes how sport impacts on society and the bigger picture of life.

Sport and physical activity provides the perfect vehicle to enhance and develop students self-esteem and key personal skills such as resilience, team work, tolerance, cooperation and tenacity. Our key aim is to provide a journey where everyone can develop personally, socially and morally coupled with a wealth of knowledge about how to improve performance and ultimately lead an active, healthy lifestyle. The curriculum design has been tailored to build confidence and courage in our scholars so they are equipped to embrace the wider world with respect, self dignity and choice.
