Physical Education and Sport

Physical Education & Sport Science Combined

Students will complete both the GCSE PE and CNAT Sport Science qualifications. Due to the cross over in content between the courses, students will have their knowledge assessed through assignment work throughout the three years and final examinations at the end of the course. As a result, the course will be highly intense and is recommended only for students who have shown an aptitude, ability and interest in the subject throughout years 7 and 8. Students must have been regularly attending a minimum of 1 extra-curricular activity or participate regularly at a good standard in an activity outside of school, in order to be suitable for the practical element of the course. Academic ability in English, Maths and Science is also important. If opting for this combined course, students will be required to regularly attend a minimum of 2 extra-curricular activities in school and will be expected to be available for school matches and competitions.

Sport Science

Cambridge Nationals are vocationally related qualifications that take an engaging and practical approach to learning assessment. The Cambridge National in Sport Science recognises the importance of science disciplines for progress in elite sport and the complex interaction between minute details of athletes’ training programmes.

This qualification offers learners the opportunity to study anatomy and physiology linked to fitness, health, injury and performance, the science of training and training principles and psychology in sport and sports performance. Assessment takes the form of four units, each contributing equally to the overall grade awarded.

Assessments & Structure:

Mandatory Units:

Reducing the risk of sports injuries - Externally Examined -25%

Written paper, 1 hour, 60 marks. Students can have two attempts at this examination.

Students learn how to prepare participants to take part in physical activity and the risk factors associated with sporting performance. They learn about common injuries and medical conditions and how to respond to these when they occur. Students develop skills relevant to many roles within the sport and leisure industry by knowing how to reduce the risk of injury and how to recognise symptoms, should injury occur.

Applying the principles of training - Internally Assessed – 25%

During this unit students will put themselves in the position of a coach and will learn about the requirements to keep their athletes in peak condition. They learn about the importance of fitness testing and monitoring and learn how to use results of these to design appropriate training programmes. Students will learn the practical skills associated with administering fitness tests and then apply their knowledge by designing their own training programme.

Sport Psychology - Internally Assessed – 25%

Psychology is a crucial and ever emerging aspect of elite sport and small details can be the difference between success and failure. Students are exposed to the factors influencing athlete mind-set and learn to use strategies and techniques to maximise performance. Students learn about the role of a sport psychologist and understand the importance of performers being relaxed and focused.

Technology in Sport - Internally Assessed – 25%

Elite sport is big business and developments in technology are constantly pushing the boundaries of performance. Innovation can not only provide advantages to athletes, but also provide a growing range of career opportunities. Learners will consider the variety of ways in which technology is being used in sport to enhance, not only performance, but also spectator experience.
