Physical Education

The P.E. Department at Welland Park Academy is an exciting, progressive department, very popular with students in all three years and the school has a reputation for excellence in sport and physical education. Our sporting ethos is to provide pupils with worthwhile and educative experiences in as many activities as possible, in the hope that they will pursue any interests through participation outside school and into later life. The department is also heavily committed to extra-curricular PE whether it is through interform competitions, lunchtime clubs, team practices or school fixtures. The department are keen to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to experience competitive sport and we are always looking to improve and extend the range of opportunities we offer. 

Each pupil has 2 x 1 hour PE lessons per week. Pupils are given the opportunity to experience a range of activities through a broad and balanced curriculum. In the Autumn and Spring terms pupils cover a combination of rugby, hockey, football, netball, health related exercise, aerobics (Year 9 only), trampolining, badminton (Year 8 & 9 only), mini tennis (Year 7 only), handball (Year 9 only), dance, volleyball (Year 9 only), gymnastics and orienteering. In the summer term pupils cover athletics, softball/baseball, rounder’s and tennis. 

We have excellent outdoor and indoor facilities, including outdoor facilities include two grass football pitches, a large grass grid area, a full size all weather pitch with hockey and football markings, a long jump area and two netball courts. Indoor facilities include a four badminton court sports hall, which also has full size markings for volleyball, basketball and five-a-side football.
