Physical Education

The department ethos is that students are challenged to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness. Schemes of learning and lessons are planned in order that students can be physically active for sustained periods of time. The need to lead healthy, active lifestyles is impressed upon students, with the aim being to encourage the students themselves to accept responsibility for their own lifelong health and fitness.

Enrichment opportunities feature prominently in the weekly sporting calendar aimed at helping students to develop and extend their skills in a wide range of sports. Extra-curricular activities include recreational clubs and school team training, friendly matches to fully competitive league and cup fixtures against Enfield and Middlesex schools.

On-site facilities used for the delivery of Physical Education include: a brand new 3G astro-turf, a large sports hall, gymnasium and a state of the art fitness suite with a range of cardio and weight machines.
