At Beacon Hill School, the Physical Education department is dedicated to developing the health, fitness and general physical development of all pupils. We promote participation in activities both in and out of school and encourage an active lifestyle.

Our facilities include an indoor school hall & gym as well as multiple outdoor facilities including an all weather astroturf pitch, hard play area, cricket square, tennis/netball courts and football pitches.

Learning physical skills and learning through physical activity encourages many personal and social skills important to life. The department offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities, giving pupils a chance to improve, but also for inter-school, district and county representation. The activities we do are aimed to meet the needs, interests and abilities of all pupils; they are intended to be energetic, purposeful and regular.

We offer different activities each term such as:

  • Athletics
  • Badminton
  • Basketball
  • Boccia
  • Boxing
  • Cheerleading
  • Crazy Catch
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • Dance
  • Football
  • Futsal
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Orienteering
  • Parkour
  • Rounders
  • Rugby
  • Table Tennis
  • Tennis
  • Trampolining
  • Ultimate Frisbee

We believe that students should learn how they can help others develop in sport as well as developing their own skills.

BTEC in Sport is offered as part of the options system for study during Key Stage 4. This gives pupils the opportunity to gain credit for their knowledge, as well as their sporting ability, leading to a recognised qualification, particularly useful to anyone hoping to enter the Leisure, Recreation & Sporting industry.
