Physical Education

The PE department at Cheadle Hulme High School currently has a six badminton court sports hall, fitness suite, dance studio, 3G pitch, astroturf, climbing wall and three outdoor netball courts. The department is made up of seven staff and two curriculum support assistants who teach across all of the Key Stages.

At KS3 all students have four lessons over the fortnight in which they are taught five areas for each sport; competition, health and fitness, application, mastery and performance. These key skills are taught through a wide variety of subjects including: Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Climbing, Dance, Football, Hockey, HRE, Netball, Rounders, Rugby and Tennis and Trampolining.

The department is also responsible for the running of the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme which develops students’ confidence as well as their time management, leadership and interpersonal skills. Students in Year 10 can opt to do the Bronze Qualification and in Year 12 students can opt for the Gold Qualification.

At KS4 all students have one lesson a week looking at a variety of activities to develop a healthy active lifestyle. Students may also opt for GCSE PE or Btec Sport Level 2 where we follow the Edexcel specification. We also offer A Level PE, where we follow the OCR specification.

Students can be fully involved in sport at CHHS. We run House Sport events during curriculum time, where students take part as a year group on a Wednesday afternoon to represent their House in a multitude of sporting activities.

To enhance the activities taught in curriculum time we have an extensive extra-curricular programme which includes entering teams in local, borough, regional and national competitions as well as promoting leadership and officiating opportunities for our KS4 students.

All of our PE teachers are trained and experienced subject mentors who enjoy working with trainee teachers. One of the department is a Specialist Leader of Education, two staff have recently completed their Masters in Education and two are currently enrolled on the Masters course. It is these members of staff who deliver the PE-specific pedagogy modules that run alongside the lessons that the trainees teach.
