Curriculum Intent

Welcome to the Physical Education curriculum page. At Maritime Academy we believe in nurturing not just young minds, but also healthy bodies. Our PE program is thoughtfully designed to instil the value of physical well-being and an active lifestyle in our students.

Through a balanced blend of dynamic activities, skill-building exercises, and team sports, we aim to cultivate a lifelong love for movement and fitness.

From traditional sports like football, netball, and athletics, our curriculum aims to give students a strong practical platform which would give the additional benefit to those students who wish to continue PE for GCSE into KS4 and beyond.  We're committed to fostering an environment where every student can thrive physically and mentally, equipping them with essential tools for a healthier and happier future. Join us in embracing the joy of physical activity and discovering the benefits of an active life!
