Introduction to your subject

As a department, we provide an inclusive, challenging and safe environment for high quality teaching and learning. This will lead to enjoyment in participation, foster a love of sport and lead to lifelong learning.


It is our intent at Beacon Hill Community School to teach pupils skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all students to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach pupils how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness, resilience and equity of play to embed life-long values.


All year 7, 8 and 9 students are put through a Fundamental scheme of work. This provides them with a basis of all the movement, balance, and co-ordination that are essential in every sport. Along with this, pupils are given the opportunity to take on many different roles in a wide variety of games activities, Outdoor Adventure Activities (OAA), and HRF.

Year Content and implementation
KS3 Rugby, Football, Netball, Dodge ball, XFit, Basketball, Table Tennis, Rounder’s, Athletics, OAA
KS4 A range of individual and team sports and activities to encourage lifelong participation and encourage active and healthy lifestyles.



Our KS3 and KS4 core PE curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all pupils at Beacon Hill Community School, not only through the sporting skills taught, but also through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, students are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful you need to take ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. Our impact is therefore to motivate students (attitude to learning) to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives (progress).
