At Colfe’s we believe that a healthy mind, body and spirit leads to happiness and success.
Through the Physical Education and Sport programme, our pupils experience opportunities to develop skills which enable them to make informed lifestyle choices in adulthood and a lifelong love of sport and physical activity.
In Years 7-9 pupils learn about the body, how to support the mind through diet, sleep and exercise and how to reflect and self-monitor to improve upon their own fitness. All enjoy one co-educational period of PE per week. A five-week rolling module of swimming, waterpolo and lifesaving, gymnastics, health related fitness, net and wall games and athletics is taught alongside theoretical concepts. Pupils are set homework bi-weekly, such as creating a balanced meal for the family, to support the understanding of how choices can impact our lifestyle.
Pupil in Years 10 and above can opt for GCSE PE or the Sport For Life module. As pupils continue along the development pathway opportunities increase to include rock climbing, yoga, horse riding, squash, basketball, volleyball, golf, lifesaving and sports leadership qualifications.
