Physical Education gives you a chance to explore how the body works in relation to physical activity. Health Education gives you the opportunity to explore real life health issues and consider realistic solutions.

In Health and Physical Education, students develop an understanding of:

  • the human body—including how our bodies move
  • evaluating physical performances—during practical elements
  • game tactics and strategies
  • social health issues
  • health frameworks and their use in analysing and evaluating health issues
  • decision making skills—to implement and refine team and individual performance
  • personal and social skills—such as communication, problem solving, critical and creative thinking, cooperation and persisting with challenges. 

Contact details for the Head of Department are listed under the Leadership and Management Team.
