Key Stage 3

The PE department at Maghull High School offers a broad and well-balanced programme of study that aims to meet the needs of the individual pupil.

At Key Stage 3 the department aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • lead healthy, active lives.

In Year 7 and 8 pupils will have 4 x 1 hour lessons per fortnight and in Year 9 pupils will have 3 x 1 hour lessons per fortnight. Pupils are assessed at the end of each activity unit which normally lasts for a 6-7 lesson period.

Those pupils who opt to do PE as an exam subject receive 4 additional lessons per fortnight. One of these lessons is devoted to introducing theoretical elements of the course, providing a basis for both GSCE and BTEC courses.

At Key Stage 4 pupils are given the opportunity to advance their work in Physical Education by studying activity pathways within an options programme.
