Physical Education

Vocational Groups

All students in the Vocational Groups follow a core physical education course in which they are given opportunities to participate in frequent physical activity conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Students are asked to pick Sport and Leisure options from a range on offer, along with the others in the Vocational Hub,

at the beginning of the year and it is hoped that they are then able to follow a more personalised programme of study.

Examples of activities – Golf; Cycling; Climbing; Swimming; Boxercise; along with traditional sports such as Football; Rugby; Baminton
