Completing a course in Physical Education (PE) is a core subject which all students have to do.  To ensure that you get the most out of the PE options we have three for you to select from.  You are asked to select a first choice and a reserve out of the three options for PE this year.

When deciding on a course ensure you consider both your practical and academic ability.  When you arrive at Wigston College you will all follow a two-week programme to determine your suitability for your chosen course.  This allows as much as possible to ensure that your  chosen course matches your learning and assessment style.

You will then follow this course throughout your time at Wigston College.



If you have a genuine interest in both the practical and theoretical aspects of Physical Education, then this course is for you.

The practical element requires you to submit four sports to the highest possible standard. It takes a good sports person to fulfil the practical requirements of the course as this makes up 60% of the final grade.

The second part of this course is the theory element. The course requires the students to learn in-depth material on Anatomy and physiology, exercise training, safety aspects and risk assessments.


Assessment of practical sessions is made at the end of each module. The theory aspects are assessed by end of module tests and ultimately the final external examination.

  • Examination (2 paper) 40%
  • Coursework 60%
