KS4 Physical Education

In KS4 year 9 options, students complete a preparation year before starting a BTEC L2 in year 10. They are covering the current Edexcel GCSE PE specification focusing on topics such as methods of training, healthy active lifestyles and factors which influence sports participation.

Year 10 students complete the L2 BTEC first award, which is comprised of four units over a two year period. Unit 1 is the only externally assessed component of the qualification, with students completing this within the final term of this academic year. They are also focusing on Unit 2, which is centred around practical sports performance.

Year 11 students study a mixture of Edexcel GCSE PE and the L2 BTEC first award mentioned above. The GCSE course is 60% practical where students are assessed on their sporting ability (In four different sports) and their ability to analyse sporting performance (AOP) and create a personal exercise programme (PEP). The practical moderation day is timetabled for the 26th April. The remaining 40% will be assessed through an exam, testing their knowledge on ten separate units studied throughout the keystage.
