Physical Education

Overview 

At UBHS we work hard to raise the profile of physical education and to develop life-long learners who realise the importance of a healthy active lifestyle and acquire skills needed to participate in sports during their school life and beyond. Exciting developments in the PE Department include the introduction of BTEC Sport at KS4. We are currently involved in two FA initiatives Team 16 and Football Mash Up. Team 16 involves futsal Leagues running during lunchtime for every year group. FMU is an after school futsal club organised by learners. We also have a brand new fitness suite and boxercise / circuit training room.

KS4: BTEC Level 1 / Level 2 First Award in Sport
In addition to the Core PE lesson learners studying BTEC Sport will participate in three additional lessons per week. Over the course learners will complete 4 units which contain theory and practical work. Learners wishing to choose this pathway must enjoy participating in PE and do a wide range of sports.

Units covered;

  • Unit 1: Fitness for Sport and Exercise

  • Unit 5: Training for Personal Fitness
