Physical Education (PE)
Through core PE, we will aim to provide the girls with the knowledge and understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic curriculum in order to develop girls for the wider aspects of school and preparing them for modern Britain. We provide a skills based curriculum, in which students are able to access a variety of sporting activities. Throughout Key Stage 3 and 4, the girls develop, enhance and transfer skills across all sporting areas, as well as the wider curriculum. One of our particular strengths is developing leadership skills for all pupils within core PE lessons. Within our Physical Education Extra curricular programme we provide amazing opportunities for all girls of all abilities, with an extensive range of sports and activities offered at lunch times and after school. We currently have approximately 40% of students taking part in extra curricular activities which is a huge increase from 13% in previous years. The PE department are currently working with Sport England to develop CPD in alternative sports areas in order to engage and drive sport at NSG even further.
