Health & Physical Education
The Health and Physical Education Department are a passionate and enthusiastic team. We have developed the PYP, MYP and WACE programs to allow our students to strive for personal improvement as well the ability to work effectively in a team sport. We highly encourage each student to apply themselves to the best of their ability in every learning opportunity. The students have many avenues to succeed throughout the year in a range of contexts, and enjoy the diverse programmes that are on offer. The programmes allow for differentiation to occur, therefore students from novice to elite are constantly challenged to allow for continual improvement and development.
