For sports lovers and budding physiotherapists, future professional footballers or someone who is enthusiastic about health and fitness, this is the course for you! The PE GCSE at the Academy offers exciting opportunities to be involved in a range of physical activities from basketball to climbing, Trampolining to rugby, Athletics to football; all of which promote an active and healthy lifestyle.

Content of course

The course is split into 60% theory content and 40% practical.

The theory aspect of the course is assessed over 2 exams at the end of year 11 in May/June. A fitness and body systems paper which is 1hour 45minutes and worth 36%. This paper covers topics such as the muscular system, skeletal system, heart and lungs, basic biomechanics, Health and Fitness, components of fitness, long term effects of exercise and sports injuries.

The second exam is 1hour 15minutes and worth 24% of the qualification. This will cover topics such as Health and well-being, healthy lifestyles, diet & hydration, sports psychology, SMART targets, Feedback and mental preparation and socio-cultural topics such as participation rates, commercialisation of sport and ethical issues.

During the practical students will be assessed on their ability within three different activities. Each activity will be marked out of 35. 10 marks will come from skills and techniques in isolation/unopposed situations. The remaining 25 marks will come from their ability within competitive situations.

There are many different sports available for assessment. Examples of these are team activities such as Football, Basketball, Rugby, Handball, Dance, and Table Tennis. There are also several individual activities such as Athletics, Gymnastics, Rock Climbing and Badminton. Students will be assessed on 3 sports and cannot be assessed on 3 team activities or 3 individual activities.

Students will also be required to produce a Personal Exercise Programme (PEP). The PEP will cover a 6-8 week training period relating to one of their practical sports chosen. The aim of the PEP is for students to apply their knowledge of methods and principles of training, components of fitness and heart rate and training zones in a practical method. The PEP is worth 20marks which equates to 10% of their overall grade.

 

Future pathways

GCSE PE is the ideal preparation for the A level in PE, as well as for vocational qualifications such as BTEC’s in Sport and Exercise sciences.  The course develops not only your sporting /coaching/leading ability in a range of sports, but offers you a range of  transferable skills such as team work, leadership, independence and energy, all of which employers look for.  Typical jobs taken by people who study the PE GCSE are: physiotherapy, coaching, fitness instruction and personal training, teaching as well as being a professional athlete or in the Armed Forces.
