Ethos of the Faculty:

Use Jesus as a role model and use all your talents to bring yourself closer to God. Do this by working hard and enjoying your lessons by showing respect and effort at all times.


We want students to enjoy their PE lessons and keep active throughout their time at Our Lady’s. This will enable them to personally develop their God given talents through a range of sports and exercise activities. We encourage this through our two main values of RESPECT and EFFORT. We want every student to leave Our Lady’s with a Sporting qualification where possible.

Year 7 and 8 Curriculum:

Students will take part in a variety of sports and activities developing their components of fitness. These will include traditional sports such as Football, Rugby, Netball, Basketball and Athletics to name a few but also sports that need different skills such as Gaelic Football, Handball, Lacrosse, Volleyball and Table Tennis. There is also a written element at the end of every sport studied which helps to prepare students for their later years at Our Lady’s.

Year 9, 10 and 11 Curriculum:

At key stage 4 students maintain their 2 hours of PE per week either through 100% practical activity or by studying the NCFE Level 1 / 2 Technical Award in Health and Fitness. This course educates students into encouraging themselves into leading an active lifestyle through practical personal development and understanding about how to stay healthy and fit.

It gives them a wider understanding and appreciation of health-related fitness, sports and exercise and how being active helps the brain function better, raises a person’s self-esteem and helps develops their social, communication, planning and team-working skills as well as helping to fight and control a variety of mental health issues.
