Key Stage 3

Core PE consists of 2 hours per week where we offer a balanced and varied programme of study. During key stage 3, students become more expert in their skills and techniques, and learn how to apply them in different activities.


Key Stage 4

Core PE consists of 2 hours per week, continuing to offer a variety of activities to suit the individual. During key stage 4, students tackle complex and demanding activities, applying their knowledge of skills, techniques and effective performance. They decide whether to get involved in physical activity that is mainly focused on competing or performing, on promoting health and well being, or on developing personal fitness. They also decide on which roles suit them best including performer, coach, choreographer, leader and official.

The view they have of their skilfulness and physical competence gives them the confidence to get involved in exercise and activity out of school and in later life. In addition to core PE we offer both GCSE Physical Education and Level 2 BTEC First Diploma in Sport at Rossett School.

Key Stage 5

We offer both AS and A2 in Physical Education together with BTEC Level 3 Sport.SONY DSC

Outdoor Pursuits

The Sports Faculty also includes the school’s Outdoor Pursuits specialist.  This has broadened the areas of activity to include residential activities and expedition work as well as providing an option in KS3 &  4 and within GCSE PE, BTEC first, A Level PE and BTEC National programmes. Outdoor Education is highly regarded here at Rossett School. The benefits of taking part in adventurous activities are recognised and promoted.

Extra–curricular opportunities include Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold level activities which extend students’ expertise and provide physical challenges which assess our young peoples’ skills and provide a good test of character. Rossett is also fortunate to have an indoor Climbing Wall which enriches the opportunities available.
