Key Stage 4 - GCSE Physical Education

 Why study PE at GCSE?

“GCSE Physical Education provides students with the knowledge and understanding of how to live a healthy and active lifestyle, enabling them to make informed choices about their own physical development.”

In GCSE Physical Education lessons students will cover both practical and theoretical components. The theory aspects will form the basis of students’ knowledge enabling them to answer the exam questions. These topics will also help students to become more competent in their assessed practical performance.

In practical lessons students will participate and be assessed in a wide variety of sports, for example; netball, handball, dance, tennis, athletics, climbing, badminton, canoeing/kayaking, and trampolining. You may also choose to be assessed on sports in which you take part out of school for example swimming, cycling or rowing.  It is expected that you will take part in extra-curricular clubs both in and out of school to improve your skills in a variety of sports.

 

Assessment Structure:

Component 1: The human body and movement in physical activity and sport- written paper (30%)

Component 2: Socio-cultural influences and well-being in physical activity and sport- written paper (30%)

Component 3: Practical performance in physical activity and sport- non examination assessment (40%)

 

 

Student Testimony:

Taisha, 11. Demeter   “Having had participated in physical activities from a young age, GCSE PE was one of my first choices. The course has enabled me to develop my skills in sports I frequently do as well as others that I may not have thought about participating in. An example of this is the rock climbing trip at PGL which I used as a sport to be assessed in. The theory exam content also developed my understanding of sports, as well as improving my performance. On top of this, it has proved to be useful in other subject such as Biology and extra-curricular activities.”


Maddie, 11.Aphrodite  "I chose PE because I have always enjoyed physical activity but taking PE for GCSE has allowed me to participate in sports that I’d never been good at before and enabled me to develop my skills. As well as this, I have been able to deepen my understanding of the sport I partake in outside of school. The theory aspect of the course has been intriguing while covering a wide range of topics and has sparked interest in a future sports related career. We have also learnt more about inspiring sports stars and current sporting benefits and problems which has helped me revise the content.”
