Welcome to Physical Education

The aim of the PE Department at Swallow Hill is to empower the students with the knowledge, values, skills and personal qualities to be confident and keen to take part in sport and physical activities. The Department offers a vast array of sporting opportunities for all of our students. We believe that PE is unique in its ability to develop the 'whole' person. We value high quality PE lessons and the extended curriculum opportunities where our students' relationships, social development, fun and health are enhanced and promoted.

We also firmly believe that competitive sport and 'opportunities for all' can co-exist in a busy academy environment. Community links are an integral part of our school sport with links forged with clubs in the area allowing all pupils the opportunity of a sustained healthy lifestyle.

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities for all pupils across the academy.

Swallow Hill PE department incorporates British values into lessons. Democracy is promoted in student voice, which is then acted upon. Students learn to accept the laws of games through rules / regulations. Mutual respect is gained for peers through students leaders acting as role models.
