Physical Education Department Ethos
The Physical Education department is a thriving hub of physical activity, which, on a daily basis challenges students to achieve individually and collectively. The department firmly support the ethos that all sport should be inclusive. Our varied curriculum and extra-curricular programme successfully allows all students to feel engaged and experience success across many different activity areas. We also look to promote the core values that develop through participating in physical activity, such as; commitment, fair play, teamwork, sportsmanship and determination.
St Nicholas has an incredible tradition of excellence across a range of activities. In recent years, students representing the school have consistently competed to a high standard, with successes in a number of sporting areas at district and county level.
We also fully support our high performance athletes who are currently competing at National and International level in a range of sports. This, along with supporting the ‘sport for all’ ethos, has culminated in the school being awarded Sportsmark Platinum; a government award acknowledging student participation rates, sporting success, leadership opportunities and promoting inclusivity for all within sport.
