KS3

Pupils at CCGS KS3 and KS4 participate in 2 hours of high quality PE/games lessons. Our PE programme incorporates supports the schools learning ethos of perseverance, autonomy and mastery. We provide opportunities for all pupils to engage in extra-curricular activities, during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This inclusive approach endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also physical and social well-being.

Our KS3 and KS4 core PE curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all pupils at Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School, not only through the sporting skills taught, but also through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Our impact is therefore to motivate students, to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives and progress this learning through our GCSE and Cambridge Technical awards.
