Physical Education

Sport and Fitness is a key part of academy life, with all students studying physical education to develop skills, ensure the physical progress of all students and develop a strong understanding of the importance of a healthy active lifestyle.

Read the latest sports news stories.

Our curriculum in Sport and Fitness inspires students to:

  • succeed and excel in a range of physical activities
  • be physically active for sustained periods of time
  • and engage in competitive sports.

We deliver a balanced curriculum and provide a challenging, creative and enjoyable learning environment. Learning is seen as a two way process where the students’ needs are fully considered and as a department we strive to provide a stimulating, enjoyable and safe environment for all pupils to develop their skills at all levels of ability. 


GCSE PE is a popular choice amongst the students and consists of a practical and theoretical element using the exam board EDEXCEL. Students typically complete four hours a week which combine theory and practical lessons. Pupils are assessed on their practical ability in four sports and are required to sit a theory paper at the end of the course. 

GCSE PE offers students the opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding needed should they wish to go on and study a similar course at Post-16 level and potentially laying the foundations for a career in the sports industry.

There are a variety of units covered within the GCSE curriculum with practical activities tailored to suit each individual student to ensure every opportunity is given to succeed.  Any practical activities that students take part in outside of school will also be considered for assessment such as diving or skiing.

This course encourages students to be inspired, moved and changed by following a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study and to develop awareness and appreciations of their own and others’ cultures in relation to physical activity.

Unit 1 – The theory of Physical Education (40% of final grade)

Unit 2 – Performance in Physical Education (60% of final grade)

Sixth Form PE

We offer BTEC Level 3 Sport and Exercise Science in the 6th form - a popular choice for students.

The programme is designed to provide specialist work-related experience and it is developed to meet the employment opportunities within the leisure industry.

The course consists of numerous units that cover a range of topics to be as broad as possible such as Anatomy and Physiology, Sports Nutrition, Sports Injuries, Sports Psychology and Research Methods.

Students complete this course fully equipped to continue into further education or to take up a post within the leisure industry.




Beyond the classroom

Beyond the curriculum all students have the opportunity to compete in sport and participate in other activities that are designed to build character, develop confidence and social skills as well as physical skills and ability.

We offer a wide ranging extra-curricular programme of sports and activities from basketball to weightlifting, trampolining to cheerleading.

Regular fixtures are arranged against other schools allowing students to proudly represent the academy and demonstrate their practical skills as well as values such as teamwork, respect and commitment. The extra-curricular programme is a truly inclusive one with all students encouraged to get involved.

We have excellent sports facilities and equipment at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich that supports the development of physical skills and abilities:

  • Full size sports Hall
  • Climbing wall
