Physical Education


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. 

Year 7, 8 and 9 topics include:

In year 7, 8 and 9 we focus on developing the values required to be successful within sport but also as successful members of society. In year 7 these include: Teamwork, communication, honesty, resilience, respect and confidence; year 8: Leadership, excellence, determination, self-being, fair play and courage and in year 9 we focus on developing confidence, competence and further enhanced leadership abilities. 

We develop these values through a range of physical activities where we focus on teaching fundamental skills and moving them into increasingly complex situations in all of the below sports. 

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Team Building & Problem Solving
  • Rugby
  • Handball
  • Fitness
  • Futsal
  • Hockey
  • Badminton
  • Cricket
  • Softball
  • Tennis
  • Athletics 


Physical Education as an option 

In year 10 and 11 learners have the opportunity to select Physical Education as part of their GCSE journey at UBHS. The course that we currently study is Cambridge National Sports Studies. Within this course we cover two mandatory units: R184 and R185 as well as one of the optional units R186 or R187. 

  • R184: Contemporary issue in sport
  • R185: Performance and leadership in sports activities
  • R186: Sport and the media
  • R187: Increasing awareness of Outdoor and Adventurous Activities

If learners do not follow the GCSE PE journey, learners will have one mandatory lesson per week. The focus in these lessons are all about lifelong participation, understanding how to lead a healthy and active lifestyle and how physical education and physical activity can positively impact the physical, social and mental health of an individual. Again, this is done through the physical exploration of a range of sports which include: football, basketball, badminton, table tennis, fitness suite, cricket and tennis.
