KS4 Examination Curriculum


Students have the option to study Sport for a formal qualification as well as the lessons they get for core PE. Our aim is to deliver outstanding outcomes that allow students to become the employees of choice in the sports industry.

 

Students currently study for a qualification in BTEC Sport. Students are assessed through coursework tasks that required students to have a broad range of knowledge of different sports rules, official in a variety of sports and to be able to assess and review their own performance.  Students also become personal trainers where they design their own personal exercise plan, investigate exercise adherence and review how effective their training programme was. Students also look at a more scientific view of how the body reacts to exercise and the energy systems within the human body. As well as coursework assessments, the students also sit an exam which looks at fitness and exercise. Students are required to have a firm understanding of a variety of training methods, fitness tests and components of fitness that they can apply to different sporting contexts’.

How do we assess students in PE?

Each year group will be assessed according to the whole school assessment calendar.

  • Year 7 and 8 are assessed practically and through theory booklets across the four assessment foci
  • Year 9, 10 and 11 complete past papers and coursework tasks as their assessment.
