IGCSE Physical Education
Upland students are challenged and championed on the playing field and in the classroom. Here, success truly is more than a win-loss record. It’s about working hard and developing attitude, drive and skills that are vital in sports and in life.
Students may opt to take Physical Education as an examination subject in Years 10/11. The objectives of the course are determined by the syllabus of the Edexcel Examination Board (U.K).
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.
The extra-curricular programme has been developed in line with sports and competitions offered as part of the two organizations we subscribe to (ISAKL, FOBISSEA). Currently teams represent the school at Under 13, Under 15 and Over 15 age groups in a variety of sports:
