The sports curriculum at the Gateway Academy is designed to enhance knowledge, skills, and understanding across a wide spectrum of activity areas. Each year, a group is provided with the opportunity to hone their skill selection and application, utilising tactics, strategies, and compositional ideas that pertain to specific activities. This allows students to engage in various competitive, creative, and challenging pursuits.
All students participate in physical education lessons, which consist of four sessions every two weeks (twice a week). These lessons are conducted in single-gender groups, and students are exposed to a diverse range of activities. Throughout each half-term, students primarily partake in two different activities during each weekly session. In PE, all students have the chance to explore a variety of sports, ensuring they benefit from a well-rounded and balanced curriculum.
