Sixth Form Virtual Open Event: Physical Education

This course is suited to students who have academic ability, an interest in sport and an interest in improving their own performance.

In the theoretical modules students will consider the science, psychology and sociology of sport. Students should therefore have an interest in studying these areas with regard to their impact on sporting performance.

For the practical modules students will need to be a good sports performer but just as importantly should be willing to work on improving their performance. Students should be playing at least one sport outside of school and they should be involved with a club or team.

Lessons cover anatomy and physiology, skill acquisition/psychology, and socio-cultural studies. Students will be taught using a variety of classroom based activities and the course will include practical group work and independent learning.
