Sports: Years 10 – 11 Overview

Through the Uplands sports programme, students are provided with opportunities to develop organization and leadership skills, coaching and management skills at a basic level.

In Years 10 & 11 students follow 2 different pathways within Physical Education. All students have 4 lessons of Physical Education; ‘core’ (non-examined P.E.) or they follow the IGCSE P.E. course.

Core Physical Education

Students are able to select their own programme and can opt to specialize in certain activities or follow a broader range of activities depending on their strengths and/or personal choice. Through the programme, students are provided with opportunities to develop organization and leadership skills, coaching and management skills at a basic level.

In Years 10 & 11, as core Physical Education is a compulsory, non-examined subject, students are assessed based on their effort.

IGCSE Physical Education

The objectives of the course are determined by the syllabus of the CIE Board (U.K).
Assessment

The course in Physical Education comprises of three components:

  • Theory 40%
  • Practical 50%
  • Analysis of Performance 10%

For the practical component, students are required to complete 4 activities. These may come from activities that are studied in school, or a specialist activity that a student studies outside of school. Students are assessed at the end of each activity to give a coursework grade.

The theory aspect investigates a number of different areas that include factors affecting participation and performance, injuries and safety, basic anatomy and physiology, training methods and drugs.
