Why should you choose Sport ?
If you enjoy Sport then this course will allow you to study two sports in greater depth (individual and a team), and focus on leadership. It is a mixture of theory and practical and lessons are made as interactive as possible.
There are numerous careers and jobs such as a Coach, PE teacher, Physiotherapist. A good grade will lead into completing A'levels and BTEC Level 3 courses and apprenticeships.
What else could you get out of Sport?
We take part in a number of activities and trips and regularly use Pulse fitness in Wednesbury. Opportunities to gain further awards in leadership and officiating are offered. There is also a chance students would be selected to be a PE leader.
