If you would like more information about our A Level PE course, Please cleick on the following link:


Students will study the anatomy and physiology of the human body, as well as how to train the body for

optimal sports performance. They will also study skill acquisition and psychology, looking into the mind of

the sports performer. Students will investigate contemporary issues in sport which relate to the culture

and heritage of sport today. Finally they will analyse how technology is used in sport with a focus on how

new technology can aid sports performance. Students will conduct a practical sports assessment and be

required to analyse the performance of others. This will involve an oral examination where students

identify a performer’s strengths and weaknesses and make recommendations for improvement.

Entry requirements

Students must have achieved at least a grade 5 on the GCSE Physical Education theory paper or a

Distinction on the Level 2 BTEC Sport course. Students will also need to play one sport at a high level

from those listed in the specification (PE Staff can advise which sports are on this list). A high level of

organisation and the ability to prioritise workloads is also required.

Your next steps...

Students will be able to continue to study a Sport related course at university. The course could lead to

careers such as a physiotherapist, Physical Education teacher, personal trainer and sports scientist. Many

of our students go onto study at university and praise the course for preparing them with the study skills

required for university.
