Physical Education

"Learning to move, moving to learn"

‘To create a happy student who achieves academically and practically through taking part in physical activities in PE lessons and clubs, whilst developing their physical, emotional and social wellbeing and a love of sport.'

  • To deliver an ambitious curriculum, which is designed for all students to develop the knowledge, understanding and skill to become a lifelong physically active person.

  • Develop the whole child through Physical Education, School Sport, Physical Activity and Health.

  • Expand students’ knowledge and skills to give them a platform to succeed in PE, Health, Social Care and life. 

  • Enrich the lives of students to enable them to make informed choices about healthy eating, fitness and their physical, intellectual, social, emotional and mental wellbeing.

Our exciting broad Key Stage 3 curriculum provides the opportunity for students to experience a wide of range of sports. Building on Key Stage 2 our aim is to develop our student’s knowledge, subject expertise and skills to create a well-rounded student who can access and enjoy sports and fitness. Our bespoke Assessment Framework mirrors the National Curriculum for PE and allows students to progress throughout the Key Stage.

At Key Stage 4 we offer vocational courses in Sport, Health and Social Care and Child Care, these subjects give students the opportunity to specialise in health, care, fitness and performance, leading to exciting careers in the Sports/Health/Care industries. Our academic curriculum compliments our Key Stage 4 Core PE curriculum where students apply knowledge and skills learnt in Key Stage 3 in game situations in a range of different sports. Our PE Passport scheme maps out pathways for students to specialise and stay in sport in life after Tile Cross.

Our inclusive enrichment programme is carefully designed to enable students to enjoy and take part in an extensive list of activities after school and at lunch time. Our programme is mapped out from feedback from student’s voice and there are exciting clubs on every evening from 3pm till 4pm. Clubs are run by specialist teachers and external qualified coaches. In addition, students have the chance to represent the school in the Birmingham School Games and inter school fixtures. 

Our House system is at the heart of the school and our House competition stimulates healthy competition in both sporting and subject competitions. This encapsulates the PE faculties’ philosophy of providing exciting opportunities for all in our new state of the art facilities.

Health and social care/childcare will help create a well-rounded student that understands how they develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially at each life stage and the impact external factors can have on their personal growth and development both positively and negatively.

Ensuring students have positive experiences and providing students with a destination to continue with sport, health and social care in the next stage of their lives.
