The Physical Education programme at University Academy Kidsgrove aims to increase knowledge, understanding and performance in physical activities and provides an introduction into the world of sport and leisure. It will give you the opportunity to complete assignments and activities based on realistic situations linked to working in the Sport and Leisure industry.

This wil be achieved through intensive sessions with students over a range of areas that involve both fitness testing and training in our schools state-of-the-art, in-house fitness suite, and a series of practical sports.  Some of these include:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Athletics

All of these are practiced on our on-site facilities where the security and safety of our students is paramount.

The course is based on theory and practical activities to develop the essential skills required for employment or career progression and will benefit students who wish to enter into most sport, leisure or sport and exercise industries and also may be a stepping stone into potential job opportunities in coaching or instructing.
