The study of Physical Education not only works the body but also stimulates the mind. The P.E department at Archbishop Tenison’s School will provide pupils with a high quality experience, which will give them the building blocks and the passion that will enable and ensure a life long commitment to physical activity and healthy lifestyles.


Physical education helps pupils develop not just physically but also personally and socially. Pupils have the opportunities to work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and social responsibility.

The PE curriculum is progressive and will focus on the development of concepts and principles that will underpin pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding to make informed choices about their future involvement as participants, coaches or officials. The PE curriculum and staff will enable all students to enjoy and succeed in a wide range of physical activities. Pupils will develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics and compositional ideas to perform successfully. Pupils will be able to analyse and reflect upon their own and others' performances and find ways to improve. They will also learn to take on different roles within sports and recreational activities. As a result, they will develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of long term healthy, active lifestyles.

The Key concepts that underpin the study of the subject are:

  • Competence
  • Performance
  • Creativity
  • Healthy, active lifestyles

At Key Stage 4 within the GCSE course, homework is set on a regular basis. At Key Stage 4, pupils should spend a minimum of an hour a week on homework and revising.
