Physical Education provision at JBS aims to provide its pupils of all abilities with a broad and balanced curriculum. We offer an extensive range of activities within and beyond the curriculum. As a department we make every effort to appeal to the needs of all young people in the hope that they become committed to life-long physical activity and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
KEY STAGE 4
CORE PHYSICAL EDUCATION
GCSE PHYSICAL EDUCATION AT YEAR 11
Students in Year 11 are in their final year of an OCR GCSE Physical Education course. The course is 70% theory, with a 30% final practical grade, assessed in school or in a club environment.
OCR NATIONAL CERTIFICATE AT YEAR 10
This new qualification offers our students the chance to develop different types of skills through largely practical means; communication, problem solving, team working, evaluation and analysis, performing under pressure, and formulating written findings from practical investigation.
This course is more industry relevant, and has become very popular within secondary schools because it suits such a broad range of learning styles and abilities.
