As a result of the positive experiences, confidence, skills and knowledge gained in PE, New Forest School students leave Year 11 inspired and engaged to continue to have lifelong participation in physical activity.
Teachers in New Forest School PE department ensure this happens by creating an environment and culture where students embed the T.R.E.D.S values (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship) into everything they do.
Key Stage 3: Students receive a double lesson of Physical Education per week. Key Stage 4: Depending on options and students need, Physical Education is available as a double lesson for Key Stage 4 students.
