Sport KS3

Outline of Course
We have fun enjoying a range of sports and sports related activities. Most of them are taught on site, but we also go off site for the Outdoor Adventurous Activities which are delivered by qualified staff. Our sports philosophy is to get students interested in doing something practical and encourage them to stay fit and healthy. We also complete theory lessons at this key stage, covering some contemporary issues in sport. This is to give our students an insight to the coursework-assessed topics of the Cambridge Nationals Sports Studies qualification and to aid a smooth transition to Key Stage 4, where they will build on the foundation knowledge that they are exposed to in years 7-9.
