    Physical Education

    Subject overview

    In both GCSE and A Level Physical Education students develop their knowledge and understanding, application and analysis of factors that underpin performance and physical activity. Lessons fully prepare students for their summer examination at the end of the two year course.

    Students are taught stimulating lessons both in the classroom and in a practical way.

    GCSE students need 3 practical assessments to count towards their final grade and they complete a written evaluation of performance coursework.

    A Level students are assessed in their strongest practical assessment and must complete a substantial written coursework element.

    At GCSE students follow the AQA specification. Further details can be found using this link:

    At A Level students follow the AQA specification. Further details can be found using this link:

    At Polam Hall School we assess KS3 students against age related expectations and have defined the curriculum for all Senior School students through the core skills and core knowledge for each year group.
