New PE courses proving a runaway success

Two new academic courses introduced to the PE curriculum are proving a hit among students.

Highfields introduced the courses - GCSE PE at KS4 and BTEC National Sports and Exercise Science at KS5 - in September.

Mr C.Brickwood, Head of PE, said they had been a runaway success with students interested in developing their knowledge of PE and sports science, including learning about the skeletal system.

The school will also be introducing GCSE Dance to the curriculum in September 2017 and has been holding taster sessions for students interested in choosing it as a subject.
