Physical Education at A level offers an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the physiological, psychological and sociological theories which underpin successful sports performances. Students considering this option should have a lively and enquiring mind, a genuine interest in sports and a willingness to explore new ideas.

Subject content includes:

  • Applied anatomy and physiology
  • Skill acquisition
  • Sport and society
  • Biomechanical movement
  • Sport psychology
  • Sport and society and the role of technology in physical activity and sport.

Students considering taking this course will benefit from developing improved analytical skills, learn to accurately interpret data and graphs, develop questioning and reasoning skills as well as learning to effectively evaluate sports performance. Students will regularly engage in discussions and debate on current topical sporting affairs.

Students will utilise their learnt theoretical knowledge to support their practical performance in a chosen sport throughout the duration of the course.
