Introduction

The PE department delivers PE lessons at KS3, 4 and 5. Pupils are offered a wide range of Sports to participate in, which goes hand in hand with the extensive extra curricular and competitive Sporting programmes offered by the department, such as offering a basketball academy, football and cricket fixtures and athletics seasons. PE is an extremely popular subject at Christ’s College and Sport plays an important role in the pupils development. We feel as a department these extra curricular activities pay a pivotal part in our students progress throughout the school.

With a wide range of weekly fixtures, the students have the opportunity to participate in competition, developing life long skills on and off the field of play.
