Physical Education

All students experience physical education on a weekly basis in core PE lessons at Outwood Academy City. In addition to this, there is a range of options within Physical Education that students can select in Year 9, giving students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding in Physical Education further. As part of our work in developing healthy, active lifestyles, there are a significant number of opportunities for students within Enrichment, giving students the opportunity to develop their physical, social and mental well being. We also endeavour to provide students with the opportunity to compete at the highest possible standards.
