At Kelvin Hall most students take part in a minimum of two hours of core PE lessons each week.
Importance of Physical Education Key Stage Three
PE develops pupils’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.
A high-quality PE curriculum enables all pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. They develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them. As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles.
Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.
PE helps pupils develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility.
They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.
Within KS3, each child will experience a range of invasion games, gymnastics, dance, striking and field sports, athletics and net/wall games. Students will be expected to take part in all areas of the curriculum, as well as applying their knowledge in the capacity of a coach and/or official.
In Year 10 and 11 students choose pathways of learning depending on the type of person they are. They can choose from aesthetic sports such as dance, gymnastics or more invasion sports - such as basketball and football.

Kelvin Hall PE Kit
In PE we have a strict uniform. We have a Jade logoed PE top (t-shirt / polo shirt) with the rest of the uniform being plain black (shorts, tracksuit bottoms when cold) and a change of trainers is required. If there are any problems with PE kit please contact the school.
Every term we have different sports and teams taking place after school. Please see our extra-curricular timetable in student’s planners or follow this link Extra-Curricular Timetable
We have tremendous facilities that cannot be matched in the area – these include a large multi-use sports hall, modern dance studio, gymnastics hall, 6 tennis courts, two large fields, a 3G pitch and a state of the art fitness suite.
These facilities give our students and staff the best possible chance to succeed as learners and educators respectively. All staff use iPads in lessons to help engage students and make learning more focused particularly in terms of sports analysis.
The department has an active Twitter account (@KelvinHallSport). Please read and follow this for a greater insight into this excellent department.
We will continue to update the Kelvin Hall website with sporting fixtures this term.
