P.E.

We aim to provide a challenging, productive, disciplined, safe and enjoyable working environment with outstanding teaching and learning for all of our students. Students will experience a balance of activities within the curriculum which inspire interest into health and fitness and also a passion for lifelong participation into sport and activity.

This is achieved through:

  • National Curriculum PE lessons.
  • Our extra-curricular timetable – open to all students in all year groups.
  • GCSE Physical Education in Y10 and Y11 (Optional).

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

The department offers a wide range of extra curricular activities before school, at break and lunchtime, after school and at weekends. A programme of activities is offered every half term and all students are encouraged to get involved and enjoy the activities – whatever their level of ability is.  Silverdale enters local and national leagues and tournaments in the majority of activities and so there is a busy programme of fixtures.
