Welcome to the Physical Education Department at Hodge Hill College. PE is a key subject in any school and one that inspires individuals to achieve the best that they can be on a daily basis and Hodge Hill College is no different. We feel that we stimulate pupil interest in PE and encourage them to enjoy healthy lifestyles on a daily basis as well as promoting awareness of the importance of being physically active. We try and allow pupils to develop a range of desirable personal qualities such as; safety awareness, politeness, perseverance, concern for others, initiative and independence. As well as this we engage pupil’s self-esteem through the development of physical confidence.

The P.E curriculum at Hodge Hill College offers students a wide range of activities to take part in during curriculum time. We aim to deliver high quality Physical Education and allow pupils to develop a healthy mind as well as being confident young leaders amongst their peers.

We have developed an excellent partnership with the Rugby Football Union and Wasps Rugby to deliver rugby lessons in school with qualified and experienced coaches. We also offer a range of other activities which include: Football, Basketball, Cricket, Tchoukball, Handball, Netball, Dance, Fitness, Table Tennis and Multi Skills.

Students at Hodge Hill College participate in a wide range of activities in both lessons and extra-curricular time as part of their KS3 PE curriculum. Our aim is to develop the skills and understanding of students to participate both competently and competitively, whilst also preparing students for their BTEC Sport qualifications at KS4. 

The health and fitness of our students is a priority within our KS3 PE curriculum. All students in Year 7 participate in a fitness lesson every week which draws on fundamental movement patterns and high intensity exercise. This is followed on with a full fitness scheme of work in Year 8 as well. 

Our PE curriculum offers a wide range of activities including football, rugby, table tennis, netball, athletics, cricket and rounders. We have excellent links with local sports teams including Wasps Rugby and Warwickshire County Cricket Club and this allows our students a number of opportunities to develop their passion and understanding for those sports.

At Hodge Hill College, students are provided with a number of different extra-curricular opportunities. We regularly enter teams for competitive games in football, rugby, basketball, badminton, table tennis and cricket (both indoor and outdoor). There are a number of lunchtime and after school clubs for students to participate in, which are led by both teachers and sports leaders within the student population. We run regular leadership courses to help develop the skills and confidence of our students to help run sessions, and we organise regular trips to sporting events. These events include professional football, rugby and cricket games, in addition to the All England Badminton Championships.
