The course is divided into four modules with two covered in year 12 and then two more completed in Year 13.
G451: An Introduction to Physical Education. This involves learning the theory of anatomy and physiology, acquiring movement skills and sociocultural studies.
G452: Acquiring, Developing and Evaluating Practical Skills in Physical Education. Two sports will be assessed (as a performer, coach or official) and an interview on evaluating and improving a chosen sport will be completed by March.
G453: Principles and Concepts across Different Areas of Physical Education. The theoretical aspects are the history of sport, sport psychology and exercise physiology. G454: The Improvement of Effective Performance and the Critical Evaluation of Practical
Activities in Physical Education.
For this course, students require a Grade 5 or better in GCSE PE. If students did not study GCSE PE, they require a Grade 5 or better in GCSE Science. It is expected that students will have an interest in the theoretical aspects of this course as well
as having ability and knowledge in two different sports.
