Physical Education

Here at Hornsea School the teaching of Physical Education is concerned with enabling every student to become independently active and to provide them with the background, skills and motivation to encourage them to opt into physical activity as a lifestyle choice.  The department aim to make all PE lessons an active, enjoyable and FUN experience for all.  We strive to create an environment in which every student can achieve their full potential, developing not only their skills and awareness of a specific activity, but also their communication skills and self-esteem.


In Years 7, 8 and 9 all students study a common curriculum, meeting National Curriculum requirements.  The main activity areas of study at Key Stage 3 include: Games (Invasion; Net/Wall; Striking/Fielding), Trampolining, Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA) and Fitness.

The PE Department also offers a range of courses which include:
• BTEC Sport
• Sports Leaders Award (formerly JSLA)
• Young Netball Organisers Award

We believe that students gain many positive experiences from undertaking sports leader and coaching awards.  Many of our students are involved in coaching younger students through the work of the School Sports Partnership and in association with the local feeder primary schools.  Which we believe is beneficial to both parties in developing strong transitional and leadership links.

Extra-Curricular Activities

The PE Department offers a broad range of clubs at lunch time and after school activities, providing a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for both boys and girls, with all students being encouraged to be involved.  The school currently provides the following extra-curricular clubs:
