At key stage three, students take part in a wide variety of different activities including football, netball, rugby, badminton, rounders, basketball, dance, trampolining and athletics. Students are encouraged to work on the quality of their practical performance and their ability to play in a game situation whilst also increasing their knowledge and understanding of the rules of the activity. In all year groups at key stage three, students will also have the opportunity to focus on their leadership and team work skills which are an integral part of the curriculum.

At key stage four, students can opt to take Physical Education as a GCSE subject and will study alongside other GCSE students for five hours a fortnight. They will take part in a wide range of practical activities, , but also undergo theoretical lessons. This generally takes place in a classroom and some of topics studied include diet, training methods, the skeletal system and the cardiovascular system.
