Physical Education/Sports Studies

UPDATED 20161102 14:51:11

This is a two year linear course consisting of two exams and a practical assessment in Year 13. We follow the AQA specification for Physical Education 7582 How can an American Football quarterback memorise over 500 individual plays and the NFL store over 1 million performance indicators for the players? How does Tom Daley complete a front four and a half-twist somersault in under three seconds? Why do women reduce the performance gap with their male counterparts when competing in running distances over 26 miles? How can Lewis Hamilton react to a stimulus within a 1/10th of a second whilst travelling at speeds in excess of 220mph? How can an elite sportsperson cope with the pressure of performing in front of a worldwide audience? Why has there not been a white male 100m Olympic finalist for 32 years? How can an Olympic weightlifter lift over three times their own body weight? Why were the British Public Schools of the 19th Century credited with the formation of the world's leading sports? How can elite high jumpers clear over 8ft, which is the height of a family living room ceiling? All of these questions and more can be answered if you opt for A-Level Physical Education. Study is focused heavily upon anatomy and physiology, skill acquisition and the historical and cultural impact of sport. The practical module provides you with the opportunity to undertake a number of roles beyond that of performer. It is essential that you have a genuine passion for participating in sport and a desire to understand the theory that underpins elite performance.
