Physical Education


Physical activity is the beating heart of the PE curriculum. Through a wide range of health, well-being and practical activities, students improve fitness levels as well as developing and applying their knowledge. A life-long love of physical activity is nurtured through the development of socially, physically, and emotionally strong and confident young women.



  • We are trialling a new curriculum in Year 7 this academic year and if 6 week blocks work better for staff and students we will be rolling this out into Year 8 and then Year 9
  • Year 8 students complete a DofE Cadets Award as part of their OAA lessons
  • Year 11 students get inducted and have access to the GLL gym as part of their post 16 fitness lessons
  • Manchester United Foundation regularly come in to give health talks to our KS3 classes
  • Year 7 & 8 students have the opportunity to complete ‘learn to ride a bike’ and complete Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications with Bikeability
