Core Sports

Our aim is for every pupil at BCS to receive a minimum of 120 minutes per week of Games and a dedicated PE lesson. Swimming is taught as a block within the curriculum. 

The current allocation over a two week period for each year group is:

Years 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11 Two single and two double lessons.
Years 12 & 13 Two single lessons. Pupils are able to utilise sport facilities outside of this.                                   

PE and Games

PE lessons at BCS have a primary focus on the development of skills, knowledge, understanding, character, confidence, health and fitness. These lessons offer the opportunity for pupils to learn about the sport and further develop the finer motor skills of the sport being taught. 

Games sessions at BCS are historically held in the afternoons and allow pupils to participate on a competitive platform for the school. This may be against other schools and teams or simply in an inter-house competitive format. BCS Games afternoons allow pupils to put into practice what they have learnt within their PE lessons and have a primary focus on game play and participation.

The two combined will enable our young people to forge a positive lifelong relationship with physical activity and sport.
