Physical Education at Lucton School

Course description

The OCR specification in Physical Education (PE) is followed at Lucton. The course seeks to help the student understand the ways in which PE and sport enhance the life of the individual and contribute to the well-being of society as a whole. The full A-level consists of four modules studied over the two years. Two of these modules test practical skills, while the other two are theoretical in nature and are assessed by written examination. The study of this subject at A-level enables students to chart the historical journey which PE and sport have been on since the 19th century, and the contribution they have made to our culture and society. There is a challenging theoretical component to the course, which allows the student to understand the impact of human physiology and psychology on performance. The practical element of the course develops training techniques and sports skills, and encourages students to develop their performance to the highest level. This is a wide and varied course but it will stimulate and challenge you at the same time!

Entry requirements

Ideally, students will have gained at least grade B in PE or a related GCSE subject, such as biology, and will have strong practical skills; however, each applicant is considered on his or her merits.
