L3 Physical Education Xcellence (L3PEX)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Welch.

Recommended Prior Learning

L2PEX or possible academically gifted L1PEX students???

This course is for students who want to get the best possible marks!  We aim for Xcellence in everything we do!  This is our top Sports Science class & students are expected to lead by Xcellent example!  We usually have 1-2 theory & 1-2 practical classes each week.

This course is academically challenging & is based around the application of Biophysical & Sociocultural knowledge.  Currently all assessment is internal which means it is on-going & students are expected to do homework. At this level students must apply knowledge to get credits!  Which means they must have knowledge to do this.  L3 is a big step up from L2 PEX.

We have traditionally offered a trip at the end of term 1 but this is dependent on many factors.

If you want a challenge both physically and academically this is the course to do!

There may be some expenses with some activities like the trip but this is an optional extra extension opportunity & is not compulsory.
