Welcome to the PE Department
The Physical Education Department aims to provide a balanced and varied syllabus, which contributes to the physical and personal development of each pupil. We aim to promote good sporting and social attitudes as well as an awareness of the contribution physical education can make to a healthy lifestyle.
The Physical Education Department caters for 11-18 year old students, through first form to the upper sixth. Additionally, Key stage 1-2 of the P.E National Curriculum is taught to our Junior House. First and second form students receive a single P.E lesson and an afternoon games lesson every week, with third to fifth formers all having an games afternoon allocated to them every week. Sixth formers also have games time allocated to them.
School offers a diverse range of physical activities in attempt to cater for every pupil at the school. Activities range from basketball, cricket, football (fourth and fifth form), hockey, rugby, tennis, volleyball, athletics, health related exercise (weights), gymnastics, swimming/water polo, orienteering and rowing.
Our extensive range of co-curricular activities, aims to supplement our P.E National Curriculum and allow pupils to extend both their positive experiences and knowledge and understanding of sports beyond class based time. We run a thriving rugby club that turns out on average 24 teams every Saturday. Rowing, from Barnes boathouse is another option, along with basketball, volleyball, swimming and water polo, amongst others. In the Trinity term, pupils compete in a very high standard of athletics and cricket.
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Forms
In addition to P.E and Games lessons we offer
AS and A level P.E., where students are able to apply theoretical concepts to their practical work, dividing their time between class room based activities and practical work at Barn Elms or within the schools facilities.
In the sixth form there is also the opportunity to qualify as a Community Sports Leader (CSLA). The programme is well supported and once qualified the students gain valuable experience coaching junior sides and working with local primary schools.
