Physical Education

At Patcham High School we aim to provide high quality Physical Education and School Sport. Our Primary aim is to provide all students with the opportunity to develop their own confidence and skilfulness across a wide range of physical activities. Throughout their time at Patcham PE is delivered to students in a fully inclusive manner meaning groups are fully mixed, both in gender and ability. We firmly believe that grouping PE in this way is an excellent vehicle for assisting personal and social development whilst still supporting elite performers.

By offering a diverse range of physical activities our aim is to promote life long participation in sport. Current activities on the curriculum include: Swimming, Personal Survival, Lifesaving, Dance, Gymnastics, Football, Netball, Rugby, Hockey, Athletics, Cricket, Tennis, Table Tennis, Trampolining, Boxing, Weight training, Squash, Badminton, Golf and Rounders.

In addition to the PE national curriculum we offer students the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications in PE and Sport. GCSE PE, BTEC in Dance, BTEC first in Sport, BTEC Diploma Junior Sport and Dance leadership awards.

School sport has a proud tradition at Patcham High and continues to thrive. The school has teams in a full range of sports that play in local leagues, Brighton cups, County Cups and National competitions

Clubs and Teams

All lunchtime and after school clubs are free of charge and are open to all. Students can attend for a number of reasons including the chance to;  develop their knowledge, skills and understanding further; try new sports and physical activities, meet new people, and play competitive sport against other schools.
