Subject aims: Physical Education (PE) is committed to creating and providing an inclusive and inspirational learning environment where pupils are able to achieve and, indeed, exceed their potential. We will develop pupils as confident lifelong learners and provide students with the opportunities to gain a accreditation or qualification in Sport.

At ACE we believe it is about providing students with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn and engage in education. PE can aid as a powerful tool that can help raise attainment, bolster social, emotional and personal development and contributes to the health and well-being of children and young people.
