Physical Education BTEC Level 3 Diploma at The Wellington Academy

Course description

In the 6th Form students are encouraged to follow a sport as part of their enrichment programme. Our clubs and fixtures allow for 6th Form students to partake. The aim of these sessions is to encourage the older students to participate in a sport as a healthy young adult.

Students in the 6th Form can choose to study BTEC Sport or BTEC Public Services. In both courses students have to pass the first year in order to progress to the second year. We use Edexcel as the exam board for both courses. We also offer a leadership programme which helps our 6th Form students develop the skills required in a number of aspects of life.

Entry requirements

5 A*-C at GCSE or equivalent including English or maths

Financial information

In May of each year the department runs a sports tour to PGL Liddington where students from Year 8, 9 and 10 are able to train and compete in netball and football. In addition to the tournaments, students also partake in a number of exciting activities such as canoeing, abseiling, trapeze and zip wire. The tour has proved to be a great success, for further information and to book a place on this year’s tour, please contact the PE department.
