The years 7-9 Physical Education programme offers a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges all students, irrespective of an individual’s sporting ability. We believe that sport and physical exercise is for all and the curriculum should enable all students to achieve in a supportive and rigorous environment. Our objective as a department will be to encourage a positive mindset that ensures all students develop competence, resilience, confidence and self-belief in a way that supports their health, fitness and future development, promoting a lifelong love of physical exercise and participation in sport.
Additionally, it is essential for all students to experience a level of competition and the sporting values this promotes. This will be achieved through inter-house sports competitions and the extensive extra-curricular sports programme that is currently offered to students at Oakwood Park Grammar School.
All students will undertake a carousel of the following activities:
Single PE lessons:
Table Tennis, Squash, Gymnastics, Basketball, Health Related Fitness, Handball, Cricket & Ultimate Frisbee.
Double PE Lessons:
Football, Rugby, Athletics & Cricket.
The school prides itself on the large amount of curriculum time given to Physical Education. The early promotion of physical education and sport is essential to achieve a lifelong love of physical exercise and participation in sport. As such students receive six hours of physical education per fortnight (two double and two single PE lessons) at OPGS, which above the government recommendation.
