Physical Education at SACGS
An emphasis on enjoyment and maximum participation!
Teaching of games is carried out using a variety of individual, small group and larger game practices. Students are encouraged to learn new skills and develop their use ultimately to try and outwit an opponent. Physical education explores the physical and mental benefits of exercise through a variety of activities. Emphasis on all teaching is to ensure all students gain maximum practice time through small group work which helps develop confidence and enjoyment in the subject in all activities and all weathers.
What happens at Key Stage 3?
You will study a different unit every half-term from the Games and Physical Education programme. Much of the early work in a unit will focus on skill repetition and development of core skills. This will progress to the introduction of opponents in a small game situation to encourage maximum involvement.

Thanks to an arrangement with South Shore Cricket and Squash Club, the school is now able to offer squash as part of its curriculum to all of its Year 7 to Year 13 students. This is possible even through lockdown as the club is currently closed to the general public, but is allowed to be used by schools under gov guidelines and has been agreed with the club.
