The PE department are extremely proud of everything the students have achieved and look forward to recruiting more exceptional ambassadors next year.

Extra Curricular Activities

Kayaking at Southmere Boating Centre

In February 2014, Year 11 GCSE PE students were given the opportunity to try Kayaking at Southmere Boating Centre in Abby Wood.

The students embarked on a two day course learning the strokes and techniques to allow them to be assessed in the sport for their GCSE.

Despite the howling wind, rain, hail and at some points sun, the students worked exceptionally hard and all achieved a grade which will boost their overall GCSE PE result.

Mr Matthews, Mr Mercer, and Miss Clare are extremely proud of the students and very impressed that almost all of the students capsized and swam in the murky, freezing lake to row their boats in to secure a high grade.
