Introduction to Key Stage 3 PE

PE and Games at Hutton Grammar School develop students’ 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.

The high quality PE curriculum and extensive extra-curricular activities enable all students 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 perform, 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.

Students at Hutton Grammar School make informed choices about lifelong physical activity from discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are and how and where to get involved in physical activity.

Inter House Competition

PE helps students develop personally and socially.  Through the inclusive Inter House competition of 18 activities, they work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility.  The students take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. 

Through the range of experiences that PE offers at Hutton Grammar School, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations, whatever the skill or ability level.
