Course Outline

PE is an excellent course for students that are interested in how the body performs in sporting contexts and the influences of society and psychology on performance. In the first year students study the skeletal and muscular systems, motion and movement, the cardiovascular and respiratory systems plus socio-cultural factors influencing participation.

At A2 students examine historical aspects and psychology of sport as well as focusing on an area of interest to produce a project that contributes 20% of their final grade.
