All pupils will be assessed in GCSE Physical Education at the end of Year 11. Pupils will be completing the GCSE Short Course which consists of the following:
- A 1 hour 30 minute theory exam.
- Pupils are assessed in two practical sports (one individual and one team sport)
The weighting for each component is as follows:
- Theory Exam = 60%
- Practical assessment = 40%
Each week pupils have a double practical session (Thurday P4 and 5). This lesson is the whole of KS4 together. During these sessions a wide range of sports are covered in preparation for the practical assessment.
Each Year group also have an additional Theory lesson which is used to learn the content required for the exam.
