Physical Education

Outwood Academy Acklam provides outstanding PE experiences for subjects across the age and ability range. We believe that PE is all about developing skills, tactics and gameplay but also the crucial life skills of leadership, communication and working as a team. At Outwood we provide a range of different activities to help engage students but also develop fitness and a lifelong love of sport.

The Physical Education course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the OCR Cambridge National course in Key Stage 4.
