At Brook Green we run a vibrant Physical Education department with fantastic facilities. The curriculum is broad and balanced, designed specifically with our students in mind. We offer a wide variety of activities allowing our students the opportunity to “play to their strengths.”
Each activity allows our students to explore ideas and strategies whilst developing their control, co-ordination and precision within both non-competitive and competitive situations. We develop leadership skills through warm ups and student designed sessions allowing our students to develop both their communication and organisational skills.
We further encourage our students to regularly take part in physical activity by running an extracurricular Sports club on a Thursday afternoon and opening the sports hall at both break and lunchtime, providing more supervised activity sessions.
Alongside this we engage in a very competitive Intra-sports program involving 5 tournaments between our House teams (Earth, Wind, Fire and Water) culminating in our end of year sports day, current champions Earth.
In Key Stage 4 we presently run two exam courses. The WJEC (Welsh Joint Examining Committee) Entry Level 2 and 3 Award in Healthy living and Fitness, consisting of three modules in; Team Competitive Activities, Frequent and Regular Physical Activity for Health and Well- Being and Adventurous Activities.
We also run a BTEC course in Sport and Active Leisure. This is an exciting new development designed to give those students interested in the Sport and Leisure industry a chance to gain knowledge, understanding and skills that may be required for employment within that sector.
Through our Personal Opportunities Day, we also provide our students at Key Stage 4 with the opportunity to engage with the outdoors through our Hill-walking program, culminating in the 10 Tors for those who wish to participate.
Both courses allowing our students to gain relevant qualifications and credits toward their chosen career path or further education.
Brook Green has a strong ethos of physical education, positively encouraging every young person to engage regularly in some sort of activity, be it in the sports hall, on the field or in the outdoors.
