Students opt to take the subject at A level for a variety of reasons. For some it will be to pursue a career path within sport while for others it will provide an interesting subject to take as a preparation for higher education, career and for life.

Pupils that complete courses in PE, particularly at A-Level, leave the College in a strong position for both BA and BSC University courses but also practical skills that can transfer to a wide range of careers.
