Exercising Body and Mind
At Bonus Pastor we pursue excellence for all in Physical Education (PE) and Sport. Our goal is to raise the standards of achievement in PE and sport for all our students. Using the power of PE and Sport, we enhance their academic, personal and social development regardless of ability. This leads to higher self esteem, and infuses them with a sense of pride in their successes, and encourages them to improve and raise attainment through the National Curriculum.
At the College, the PE Department aims to make young people healthier, encourage them to develop their self discipline and teamwork skills, develop their leadership potential and introduce them to activities they will enjoy and derive health benefits from for a lifetime. We also promote links between colleges, share resources, develop and spread good practice to further raise standards.
By providing enhanced opportunities and offering encouragement to engage in PE as spectators, participants, coaches, administrators or officials the members of our community also benefit from what PE can provide.
