Sport and Physical Education is at the heart of Falmouth School. We strive to provide as many sporting opportunities to our students as possible within our new state of the art facilities.
We focus on developing the core skills through a scaffloded, progressive curriculum from K3 to KS5. This underpinned by a clear focus on the core skills (teamwork, evaluation, leadership, performance, health related fitness and tactical knowledge) to develop well-rounded students who, at their end point, are able to make informed choices in order to lead life-long healthy and active lives.
Core PE at Falmouth School is focused on promoting and enhancing different aspects of students health and wellbeing. The BTEC Sport course is targeted towards students who have a keen interest and passion for sport. Studying on this course involves a mixture of practical and theoretical lessons and students are assessed practically, through an external exam and through a range of coursework based units. Students cover four different units on the course including; Fitness for sport and exercise, training for personal fitness, practical sports performance and sports leadership.
Sport is a prominent part of Sixth Form life, with students off timetable on Wednesday afternoons to complete a number of exciting enrichment opportunities including; Netball academy, Football academy, Fitness and general sporting activities. Regular fixtures take place against other colleges and sixth forms in a number of sporting activities both for fun/participation and for serious competition and a variety of fun enrichment sporting trips also take place each year.
