GCSE PE

Do you have a keen interest in how the body and mind works? Ever wondered why participation levels in sport decrease as you get older? Do you enjoy evaluating and analysing sporting performance? Have you ever considered why some foods are good for sporting performance?

Studying GCSE (9–1) PE opens students' eyes to the amazing world of sports performance. Through the two-year course, students are equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to develop their own performance in sport and understand how the physiological and psychological state of the body can impact upon a sporting performance. During the theory lessons, students will study and be examined on topics covering Applied Anatomy and Physiology, Physical Training, Sports Psychology, Socio-cultural Influences and Health, Fitness and Wellbeing. Alongside this, students will be examined in a coursework task which requires them to analyse and evaluate performance in physical activity and a practical moderation which includes students’ performing in three different sporting activities. The overall combination of academic challenge and physical performance provides an exciting opportunity for students wishing to pursue a career in sport and although not compulsory, provides an excellent grounding for students who may wish to follow the A Level PE course.

Throughout the two-year course, students will study two different examination components and will sit an exam in each component at the end of Year 11. They will complete a written coursework task and will be asked to perform in a range of sporting activities to determine the three best sports for them to be moderated in. Practical assessment will be ongoing and will take place in CORE PE lessons. Students should also endeavour to attend extra-curricular clubs and/or compete in a sport outside of school regularly, to boost their practical scores.
