Edmund Rice College has a strong and dedicated PE Department which is staffed by teachers who foster team spirit, co-operation, honesty and integrity, whilst delivering the prescribed programmes of study in Physical Education. In the recent Inspection report PE was recorded as ‘very good.’

Key Stages 3, 4 & 5

All students in KS3 and KS4 at Edmund Rice are allocated periods in their timetable for PE. PE is a compulsory subject and all the boys and girls are expected to participate. In Year 11 students can opt to do Sports Studies as a GCSE subject. The course is a Btech Level 2 and has the equivalence of 2 GCSE’s. In Year 13 & 14 they can study Sport at Btech Level 3 which is equivalent to an A Level and is recognised by all the Universities.

After School Activities

The PE Department is at the centre of our range of extra-curricular activities. The sports activity programme gives the pupils an opportunity to develop personal and social skills as well as pursue sporting interests. There is a very strong tradition of sport and there is a sense of pride in the pupil when representing the school in any sport.
