Physical Education

Exercise and sport knowledge are the foundation to the curriculum, ensuring we develop the core language and scientific knowledge to understand the human anatomy which is crucial to stay fit and healthy. Students will have the opportunity to explore different roles within sport; as performer, coach and official which will take them closer to a career in sport.  

Sport at Harris Academy Wimbledon has an integral role in developing well rounded individuals through lessons, competitions, enrichment and external sporting opportunities. Sport develops resilience, confidence, competence and leadership; all good characteristics that help people on to success in life. Pressurised situations provide an opportunity for students to develop skills learnt and apply them in a realistic sporting scenario which will further develop the student’s ability to perform under pressure which is a great life skill. 

The extensive extracurricular programme provides students from less advantaged backgrounds the opportunity to take part in further coaching and sport focussed coaching. This extra provision will enable students to access opportunities, which could inspire students to participate in sport and exercise beyond Harris Academy Wimbledon.  

The Key Stage 3 and 4 Physical Education curriculum must:

  • develop and allow application of a range of tactics and strategies to overcome opposition in team and individual sports 
  • develop and improve the range of students’ individual techniques and skills in competitive sports, including a range of advanced dance techniques and styles 
  • encourage students to take part in adventurous training activities to enhance teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills 
  • proactively develop self-analysis of performance to demonstrate improvement and achieve new personal bests
  • encourage all students to compete in competitive sports and physical activities in and/or beyond the Academy
