Faculty Information

The PE Faculty offers subjects including Physical Education and Sport alongside our Football Academy Programme.

Students who choose to study Physical Education will follow OCR A-Level Physical Education. Within Physical Education, students will explore the physiological factors that affect performance, the psychological and socio-cultural themes within PE, and the contemporary issues in physical activity. There is also a significant practical element to this course that requires students to be physical competent in at least one activity. In BTEC Sport, students follow the Edexcel Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Sport which explores the theoretical principles of anatomy and physiology in sport, sport psychology, and professional development in the sports industry. Our Football Academy Programme follows the Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport. The Football Academy programme is a full-time two-year course that includes a mixture of theoretical and practical elements. As well as the primary BTEC academic qualification, Football Academy students will also study various sporting national governing body vocational courses. They will also have the opportunity to undertake work experience in their chosen field.

Enrichment and Sports Performance

Our extra-curricular sports programme complements the A-Level PE curriculum on offer. The PE Faculty organises and coaches a host of Post-16 sports teams that are consistently successful in local competitions. Some of our Post-16 sports teams also compete in district and county competitions.

Denbigh has developed a sports performance programme to provide talented students with support in combing their sporting talent and academic studies. This has included talks from professionals within the industry, giving advice on how to balance academic study with training demands.

Schemes of Learning

Each faculty has developed a two-year Scheme of Learning for each subject. The Schemes of Learning outline the curriculum journey that students will embark on during each academic year.
