The academic Physical Education department at Cranleigh offers GCSE PE in Years 10 and 11; this qualification leads well to either of the two courses on offer in the Sixth Form: A Level Physical Education, and the BTEC Extended Certificate in Sport.
The theoretical components of all of these courses are delivered by specialist academic PE teachers who have a vast range of experience. All three courses also include a practical component and many of the pupils who take these courses have reached high standards in one or more of our school sports. These academic qualifications can complement the pupils’ understanding of the physiological, psychological and sociological aspects of their performance, as well as, in the Sixth Form, preparing them for work in the sport/leisure industry.
