Physical Education A Level at Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School

Course description

This is a wide ranging and challenging course that promotes learning in both the scientific and social aspects surrounding physical activity and sport. With 30% of the course based on practical sports, pupils are encouraged to relate theory to practical. The physiology of the body is linked into sporting performance, as is how the mind acquires and learns skills. Students are encouraged to analyse and evaluate theories and be able to plan advanced training and fitness programmes. Past students have said that A level PE really helped in their first year at University when going on to study courses such as physiotherapy. From elite sport to health issues, PE is an interesting, challenging and enjoyable course which prepares students for both further studies and an active lifestyle.
