Physical Education

Welcome to the Faculty of Physical Education. 

 

We are a team of 12 who are all committed to promoting a sport for all philosophy, whilst providing an enjoyable education promoting a healthy active lifestyle. We also provide the opportunity for the pursuit of excellence and competition for those who desire it, through the medium of an extensive extra-curricular programme (please see link below); which makes use of staff from within the school and coaches from local clubs. 

 

Two major events that feature in the year are QE School Games Sports Days and Rock Challenge (a national dance competition). The school is succeeding in county, district, and national competitions in a range of sports (both individuals and teams) and we are equipping students to enter professional careers in sport. We also run the Duke of Edinburgh Award which is hugely successful and attracts around 100 students ever year.

 

Leadership also features highly and over 200 students represent the school as QE sports leaders in a variety of events. Students also have the opportunity to go on sports tours in football and hockey.

 

The sports facilities at Queen Elizabeth’s are outstanding, and include an indoor heated swimming pool, fitness suite, floodlit netball/tennis courts plus a 5-court sports hall containing an excellent climbing wall, a floodlit Astroturf hockey pitch, a dance studio, extensive fields and an athlete education centre. We also have 4 dedicated PE classrooms for theory lessons, with interactive whiteboards and laptops.

 

We are committed to developing Sport through the Community and the Community through Sport. Consequently, we have an excellent relationship with QE Leisure Centre, local sports clubs, including Wimborne Wayfarers, Wimborne Athletics Club and of course our Middle School feeder schools.

 

We also have strong links with the SEN faculty in providing opportunities in curriculum and extracurricular time for all students of all abilities. We run a successful Adapted Sports Programme for students with learning abilities as well as a Performance Programme where we aim to meet the needs of our high achieving students. Our approach ensures that in every lesson high quality, high expectations and high standards are applied and that teaching and learning methods are designed to engage, enthuse and inspire all students to achieve their full potential.
