Physical Education

Key Stage 3

Sport plays a significant role in the lives of pupils at Holcombe Grammar School and there are regular weekday and weekend extra-curricular activities running throughout the year for boys to participate in, including; Football, Rugby, Hockey, Cricket and Athletics to name but a few. Extra-curricular activities are available for everyone and all pupils are encouraged to take part in our extensive Physical Education program.

Pupils receive one two hour lesson per week covering a range of sporting activities from Table Tennis to Softball over the course of each year. Emphasis is on learning and enjoyment and pupils are encouraged to become analytical thinkers as well as accomplished performers. Pupil’s knowledge and understanding plays a major part of the PE curriculum as pupils are expected to understand why they achieve and more importantly, what they need to do to progress further. Physical education lessons are also an opportunity to utilise some of the schools enviable sporting facilities, for example the 3G pitch, indoor sports hall, and state-of-the-art gym, as well as having access to the facilities as Holcombe hockey club.
