Aims:

Physical Education at Selby High is built on the foundations of enjoyment, learning, participation and success. As a result, there is both breadth and depth to the curriculum which incorporates increasing pupil choice and opportunity from year 9 to 11. The PE department’s aims closely tie in with the whole school aims.

  1. For all pupils to understand that opportunity, combined with effort, can lead to success and achievement.
  2. For pupils to achieve their full potential and enjoy their sport in a safe and positive environment.
  3. Continually develop practical opportunities for all pupils.
  4. For pupils to understand the fitness and health opportunities that exist in the local area, and know their role in that community.
  5. To develop competitive, but fair, sports people who show responsibility and respect at all times.

    • In core year 10 games, students are able to opt for sports & activities that they would like to cover in more depth. And they are awarded certification for successfully completing the chosen units of work.
    • Students select 6 options from: Football, Netball, Rugby, Hockey, Lacrosse, Climbing, Tchouk Ball, Ultimate Frisbee, Handball, Badminton, DofE, Basketball, Aerobics, Volleyball, Trampolining, Dance mats. Additionally, all students will study Athletics.
    • Year 11 Leisure & Recreation
    • In YR 11, students spend 2 lesson per fortnight in a school PE lesson, and a full afternoon outside school at one of the local leisure facilities. We believe that by giving students this privilege, they are more likely to continue with physical activity once they leave school.
    • This venture has been a great success for many years now and we pride ourselves on the reputation our students have built within the Selby community. For a small fee, students can choose from:
    • Zumba, Spinning, Swimming, Fitness suite/Weights, Astroturf football/Hockey, Boxing, Snowboarding, Mixed Martial Arts, Squash, Ten pin bowling.
