PE Department Vision

To enable all children and young people to be the best that they can become by ensuring that learning and teaching is consistently good to outstanding and the curriculum and extra-curricular provision for all children and young people is broad, balanced, inclusive, innovative, challenging and specifically tailored to groups.

This is achieved by the department firmly believing that there is a ‘sport for all’ and it is part of our job as PE practitioners to help students find ‘their’ sport. At APHS students continue to receive four hours of PE a fortnight and participate in up to eight different activities over the year, ensuring breadth and depth to their learning. The extra-curricular programme is action packed, offering over 25 diverse activities throughout the academic year, from Archery, Trampolining, Martial Arts, Dodgeball, and Swimming, as well as more traditional sports such as Football, Rugby, Netball and Hockey.All clubs are free to join and include some being delivered by expert coaches through the schools developing club links. Every student will have an extra-curricular timetable stuck in their planners so please check them to see what else is available on a termly basis.

As a department we also aim to increase the opportunities available for all children and young people to be involved in leadership, volunteering and other roles within PE. This is supported by students having the opportunity to support organise and officiate Cluster and Partnership competitions by completing units of work in line with a Sports Leader award, developing and preparing them for such responsibilities.



We offer a wide range of different sports and activities within the KS3 curriculum:

Rugby, Football, Netball, Hockey, Table Tennis, Dodgeball, Cross Country, Swimming, Gymnastics, Athletics, Cricket, Rounders.

We focus on both team and individual sports to cater for all needs of the studentsand to well prepare them for the option of GCSE PE assessment sports.Once your child reaches Year 9, they may have the opportunity to start GCSE PE course.



We introduce more alternative and innovative activities at KS4 to engage all and keep all students involved in a range of activities that develops their personal fitness and promotes an active, healthy lifestyle. This includes:

Water Polo, Mixed Martial Arts, Fitness Boot Camp, Sports Leadership, Volleyball, Basketball, Benchball, Softball.
