In A Level PE students develop the knowledge and skills in order to understand the opportunities and effects of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. Students are given the opportunity to build on their experience and improve their personal skills/techniques across a variety of roles and in a sport of their choice.
Throughout the A-Level Physical Education course students will study the following topics:
Assessment requirements of the AS course include a 2 hour written paper at the end Year 12 which contribute 70% of a student’s final grade. Students practical ability and their written ability to evaluate and improve their own performance is internally assessed and externally moderated which contributes to 30% of the final grade.

The non-exam assessment (NEA) aspect of the qualification requires students to develop their ability and aptitude in physical activity, demonstrating appropriate skills and techniques outlined below. This aspect of the specification requires students to:
• perform a range of skills and techniques in physical activity and sport
• make decisions, implement strategies, tactics and/or compositional ideas, and apply knowledge and understanding of rules and regulations while performing physical activity and sport
• apply knowledge and understanding of theories, concepts, principles and methods to physical activity and performance
• evaluate performance in physical activity and sport, applying relevant knowledge and understanding.
There are two aspects to the NEA:
1. performance assessment (practical performance)
2. performance analysis assessment (analysis and evaluation).
