Physical Education at Bonus Pastor:

At Bonus Pastor we pursue excellence for all in Physical Education 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 their attainment. We believe that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind and soul.

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 primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, share resources, develop and spread good practice to further raise standards.

Physical Education at KS3:

 Lessons are compulsory in Key Stage 3, and students receive 4 periods a fortnight, which are incredibly varied. The aim of the Year 7 course is to consolidate the learning of students from Key Stage 2 and develop the skills required for Key Stage 3. Students are assessed half termly to monitor their progress.  The activities that are taught in year 7 include football, netball, rugby and badminton in the Autumn term. Other sports include gymnastics, trampolining and dance as well as hockey for the Spring term. In the Summer term traditional sports such as cricket and rounders are taught as well as athletics to prepare our students for their Inter-house Sportsday in the Summer.

In Year 8 students are split into sets so they can develop their skills and fitness further and new sports such as basketball, softball and table tennis are introduced. Students also get to refine their skills in the sports covered previously in Year 7.


Physical Education at KS4: 

Physical Education is compulsory at Key Stage 4 for Core PE lessons and students receive 2 periods a fortnight. There is a lot of focus on selecting activities, which students might want to continue into their adult lives such as fitness training as well as continuing with activities they have previously participated in. Students are also strongly advised to choose BTEC Sport, in order to continue to develop their skills and understanding from Key Stage 3 if they wish to pursue this type of career.
