‘Team Byrchall – Sport for Life’ encourages lifelong participation in sporting activity. The Team Byrchall ethos helps students to build confidence and security in PE, which in turn impacts on the high volume of students who are involved in extra-curricular activities both in and out of school.

Students not taking exam level PE will only receive 1 hour of PE in the curriculum per week. However, the offer outside of the curriculum (school sports clubs) allows them to take part in out of hours learning and development.

Core students (non-exam PE) will be allowed to choose a route that suits them best. All students in Year 9 will take part in fitness and athletics regardless of route choice.
