Key Stage 4 Overview
Pupils will tackle complex and demanding physical activities. They will get involved in a range of activities that develops personal fitness and promotes an active, healthy lifestyle.
Physical education enjoys a strong tradition at Altrincham College, and we feel that it is an important aspect of the school experience. As such, throughout Key Stage 4, all students will receive 2 lessons of PE per week, regardless of which route they choose to take. However the GCSE PE students will divide their programme into a double practical and single theoretical lesson.
|Throughout Key Stage 4, students will be taught to:|
|Use and develop a variety of tactics and strategies to overcome opponents in team and individual games [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby and tennis];|
|Develop their technique and improve their performance in other competitive sports, [for example, athletics and gymnastics], or other physical activities [for example, dance];|
|Take part in further outdoor and adventurous activities in a range of environments which present intellectual and physical challenges and which encourage students to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group;|
|Evaluate their performances compared to previous ones and demonstrate improvement across a range of physical activities to achieve their personal best;|
|Continue to take part regularly in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.|
