Physical education is a subject which is enjoyed by all students at Villiers High School. The P.E department aims to provide students with a broad and balanced curriculum that enables all students to develop their physical, moral and social wellbeing. Physical Education has many benefits and as a department we provide opportunities for students to use their communication, teamwork and leadership skills thus enabling young people to become all round better citizens within the community of Southall. At Villiers students will learn about the theoretical and physical aspects of sport and physical activity to ensure that all students in P.E make progress. As a department we also feel that our enriched extra curriculum programme provides students with an opportunity to represent the school but to also follow a pathway in activities which they enjoy. We are involved in all of the local tournaments and have community links with a number of local sports clubs including London Tigers.

Study at Home for KS3

Key Stage 4
G.C.S.E AQA Physical Education (9-1).
For students who take G.C.S.E as one of their options in Key Stage 4 the focus is upon the development of physical literacy and the course is assessment is broken down into:
· 60% theory
· 10% coursework
· 30% practical
There is much more emphasis on how students are able to articulate sports specific terminology and to also apply this knowledge within a sporting context. The practical element of the course is performance based and so students should be aiming to play their sport to on a regular basis either at a local grassroots level up to a county standard. We also aim to challenge students who have not selected G.C.S.E P.E as one of their options by providing lessons which are engaging and enjoyable.
BTEC First Level 2 Sport and Exercise.
For students who study BTEC Firsts in Sport is the alternative option as this sport pathway is designed for learners with a generic interest in sport and the sports industry. It includes a range of units that allow learners to gain the skills required to develop their knowledge of sport and the sports industry.
