Physical Education at KHP allows pupils the chance to develop complex physical and social skills through a broad and challenging curriculum. We pride ourselves on developing confidence, respect and team cohesion through a range of different activities such as leadership. We strive to instil a love for physical activity and sport into all of our pupils and and hope that each and every pupil understands the importance and continues to engage in a healthy active lifestyle once they leave us.

Extra-Curricular Sports Clubs
At KHP we have wide variety of sports clubs on offer, we urge all pupils to come along and try out a club whether it be for recreational purposes or with a view to playing competitively. Our sports clubs are well attended and provide pupils with the opportunity to further develop their skills.
We are part of the MK schools league for many sports and also the County Cup for Football. This gives our pupils the opportunity to further develop their skills and represent the school in a competitive fixture against another school. Fixtures also help to instil sportspersonship and key values such as respect, team work and discipline into our pupils.
Pupils have the opportunity to engage in Sports Leadership, where they support and lead activities for younger pupils. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop key skills and qualities such as confidence, creativity and independence.
Year 7 Curriculum

GCSE Physical Education
During Key Stage 4 pupils who choose Physical Education (PE) as an option will study either the OCR Cambridge Nationals Sport Studies or the AQA GCSE PE course, in addition to core PE. Both courses offer pupils the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of theory based PE as well as developing various practical elements.
The pupils will study a number of theory topics such as, the human body and sport and the media. Pupils will also develop their practical skills in preparation for practical assessments. Theoretical and practical assessments will be integrated into both year 10 and 11, with coursework and written examinations during the year.
