Year 9 Health and Physical Education

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Manners.

In Health and Physical Education, the focus is on the well-being of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in health-related and movement contexts. 

Through learning and by accepting challenges in health related and movement contexts, students reflect on the nature of well-being and how to promote it. As they develop resilience and a sense of personal and social responsibility, they are increasingly able to take responsibility for themselves and contribute to the wellbeing of those around them, of their communities, of their environments (including natural environments), and of the wider society. Health and Physical Education makes a significant contribution to the well-being of students beyond the classroom. 

We cover a range of topics across the two years of this compulsory course (Year 9 and 10) that are both practical and theory based.
