Physical Education

"PE is Powerful Education"


As a PE team, we aim to create an enjoyable and engaging environment where all pupils experience success through a range of sports. Our wide and varied curriculum provides the opportunity for pupils to develop a range of skills which are necessary for sport and everyday life.

It is important that every child gets the chance to experience a range of individual and team sports with the aim to motivate them to continue with physical activity in life beyond school. At Deptford Green we offer a wide range of sport such as football, basketball, handball, table tennis, badminton, fitness, cricket and athletics. We have also begun many links with clubs outside of school such as a local boxing club, a basketball club and others.

Class Activities and Enrichment

Extra-curricular activities are very important to the PE team at Deptford Green. We aim to offer activities everyday at lunch and after school. Our extra-curricular clubs range from basketball and badminton at lunchtime to fitness, football and handball after school. We have also entered teams into the National Indoor Rowing Competitions.

Every year we enter our year 7 and year 8 football team to the ESF football tournament which is held at Butlins in Bognor Regis. The students get to experience playing against teams from other areas of the country, which they always enjoy.

At the end of each academic year, the PE team offer a trip for the most committed students to PE. Previous trips have included a day at Wimbledon Tennis club to watch the championship as well as a day at Wembley Stadium.


At KS3, all students have two hours a week of PE. Each half term the students will experience a new sport/activity. Each half term will end with a practical assessment on the skills and techniques they have learnt. The activities that we offer include basketball, football, handball, table tennis, athletics, fitness, cricket and softball.


Core PE: Every student in year 10 and 11 experiences one hour a week of core PE. Our aim is to inspire and motivate all students to participate and to continue with physical activity outside of school. Activities include football, basketball, handball, fitness with a personal trainer and badminton.

Sport Studies: Students who select Sport Studies as an option for GCSE will have five hours of lessons over two weeks. Within the course, we cover a range of topics such as Contemporary Issues in Sport, Developing Sport Skills, Sports Leadership and Working in the Sport Industry. The course is made up of four units, one being an exam and the other three being a mixture of coursework and practical performances. The course is a natural progression for students who wish to study sport in college as most colleges offer the Level 3 Sport Studies Course.
