Physical Education at Aylesbury High School has a major role to play in fostering positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. We aim to promote a sense of enjoyment for Physical Education and to familiarise the pupils with the principles and vocabulary related to Physical Education. As a statutory curriculum subject, Physical Education is taught to Years 7-11 for 2 periods (2x 1hour lessons per week). In addition to the provision above the girls can study GCSE PE and GCSE Dance at KS4 and AS and A2 PE at KS5.
Throughout term time we run House competitions in volleyball, football, Swimming, Dance and Rounders. The academic year ends with the culmination of athletic talent in our House athletics competition. Over 300 students participated in this year’s House Dance Competition – performing 4 times to sold out audiences!
There is an extensive co-curricular programme run during lunch times and after school including sports such as: netball, hockey, basketball, aquatics, aerofit, Smash Up badminton, squash, badminton, dance, football, cross-country, athletics, tennis, dodgeball, benchball, fitness, trampolining, rounders and cricket.
In addition we offer an extensive fixture list throughout the year, competing in friendly matches, local leagues and tournaments, county tournaments and national competitions.
AS and A level specifications in Physical Education encourage learners to improve as effective and independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers with curious and enquiring minds. AS and A level PE require students to have a basic understanding of the scope of different areas in physical education.
