Key Stage 5 Enrichment – Physical Education
In the Sixth Form at Hagley, there are many exciting opportunities for our students to expand their horizons by participating in a range of activities. The teaching staff at Hagley are highly experienced and dedicated, and they build excellent relationships to ensure our students develop and achieve their potential. The Physical Education (PE) department offers a lively programme of Sixth Form Games and students are encouraged to involve themselves with one or more of the sports teams. We offer a full programme of competitive fixtures in the following sports; 1st XV Rugby Team, 1st, 2nd Football Teams, Basketball team, Girls Netball, Rounders and 1st X1 Cricket team. In addition to these sports fixtures, we offer a wide range of recreational activities for those wish to get active in a less competitive setting. The range of activities include golf, ten-pin bowling, badminton, squash, kayaking, basketball, table tennis, multi-gym, rowing, mountain biking, aerobics, tennis, softball, volleyball, zumba, dodgeball, indoor football, ultimate Frisbee and benchball. Wednesday afternoon is set aside for Sixth Form Games, which is compulsory for Year 12 students (unless they have opted to undertake work experience placements) and for those studying A2 Physical Education in Year 13.
Our Sixth Form students represent the highest level of sport within our school and over the years they have provided excellent role models for our younger pupils. Within the PE department, students have the opportunity to gain experience of coaching, organizing and officiating sports events/trips for pupils in the lower school. These opportunities are ideal to support UCAS applications, coaching qualifications and awards (DofE), in addition to helping develop a whole range of transferable life skills. For each of the main sports, the PE department elects a club captain to help organise fixtures/events and encourage Sixth Form students to get involved. Perhaps the most exciting of all being the ‘Old Boys’ football fixtures, where our former Sixth Form students are invited back to challenge the current 1st and 2nd football teams.
