Introduction

 

At St. Mary's Sports College, physical education is a fundamental part of our pupil's everyday experience, embracing our college specialism in all areas of the curriculum. Pupils receive a minimum of two hours high quality Physical Education per week plus access to a range of extra curricular activities that will enrich their time dedicated to physical activity. In addition to this, our curriculum offers each pupil with the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification and/or accredited award in PE and Sport by following one of three learning pathways offered to them at the start of year 9.
