The school is a community where every individual is valued and expected to excel. 

The physical education programme offers the student the opportunity to benefit from specialist teaching and coaching through participation in a variety of different sporting activities.

The PE programme aims to instil the understanding and the importance of fitness and health for life.

There are opportunities for the students to further their academic achievements through sport by undertaking GCSE PE, GCSE Dance and A Level PE studies.
