PE & Performance Arts
PE is a popular subject at Campion. Our PE curriculum follows the National Curriculum and offers students a wide range of activity areas within games, gymnastics, dance and athletics. Students receive a variety of indoor and outdoor lessons. We have a wide range of facilities including an astroturf pitch and a large sports hall. Campion offers a variety of extra curricular activities and runs teams in many of these with after school matches against other schools. Extra curricular clubs run at lunchtimes and also after school until approximately 4.15pm.
Extra Curricular Clubs and Activities
Lunchtime Clubs and After School clubs cater for the wide range of activities offered by the PE department. Please see below for the PE department extra-curricular programme.
We also offer lots of opportunities for students to develop their leadership and volunteering both in school and in the community.

A variety of sports and activities with slight differences between the curriculum for boys and girls and including: Hockey, netball, rugby, football, basketball, badminton, cross country, dance, gymnastics, athletics, rounders, cricket and tennis.
For 2016 the Year 7 and Year 8 students are taught in 4 lesson rotation blocks. Year 9 are currently on one indoor and one outdoor lesson per week.
Students are assessed at the end of each block of work and at the end of the teaching of each sport or activity. There is a combination of teacher assessment, self assessment and peer assessment. Students’ national curriculum levels, effort and behaviour are also assessed at regular intervals.
