The Physical Education faculty has a vision of every student gaining a lifelong commitment to physical activity. The faculty aims to give opportunities to every Sponne pupil, by providing a wide variety of sports covered in the curriculum and through the enhancement programme. Boys and girls both enjoy football and rugby, hockey, netball, tennis, athletics, rounders, cricket, badminton, basketball, fitness, outdoor education and trampolining. All of these are complemented by sports delivered in conjunction with outside agencies.
The faculty has enjoyed great success in extra-curricular activities, with teams regularly making county finals. Recent successes have included quarter-finals in the National Football Cup and Midland Athletics finalists in three age groups. Matches and practices take place on weekday lunchtimes and evenings.
Our successful SSCO programme, and the use of our JSLA and CSLA students, has enhanced our links with community clubs and local primaries and we build upon this with a range of new approaches in teaching and learning that have contributed to raising standards in Physical Education. GCSE PE results are considerably above national averages and we have a successful ‘A’ level course.
