From a student’s first steps in BST, PE and Sport is an integral part of each individual’s development. From Nursery, where students begin the process of fundamental skill development in a fun, yet challenging environment, to the Sixth Form who representing the school at local, national and international level.
Lessons are taught by experienced, fully committed specialist staff, who share the same philosophy of installing a lifelong love of sport and physical activity in their students. It is the goal of the PE department that all students make progress and are given the chance to experience a range of opportunities both within and beyond the curriculum.
Whatever the sporting situation, all students are encouraged to display teamwork, respect and a positive attitude towards PE and Sport. Students learn to win, and lose, gracefully, and are given the tools to reflect upon and evaluate their own and others performances. This understanding is further developed through students fulfilling a variety of roles to enhance their leadership capabilities. Across all Key Stages, students at BST are given the chance to take on positions of responsibility such as: Coach, official, leader, choreographer, organiser, reporter, photographer, Sports Captain and the prestigious Sports Ambassadors’ role.
Each Year group sees progress that exceeds National standards, allowing all students to go beyond their academic and sporting potential, culminating in outstanding results at iGCSE and A Level. Through a variety of teaching and learning techniques, students are given the necessary skills to become independent learners and use modern technology to gain even greater success.
