Introduction

“You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream the further you get” Michael Phelps (Olympic Swimming Legend)

The Physical Education Department believes that every student should foster a passion for at least one sporting activity, we offer a wide range of activities across the curriculum and this is complemented by extensive extra-curricular opportunities so that every student will find that passion.

At Quintin Kynaston Physical Education lessons are active, enjoyable and challenge all students to make progress physically, socially and cognitively. All Physical Education lessons aim to promote and install the school values; we challenge and support students to become resilient, to aspire and improve their performances, we celebrate and encourage our young people to seek out and be proud to of their contributions to the school community. The department is fortunate to have excellent modern facilities that will include a large sports hall, dance studio, fitness suite, a large MUGA for outdoor sports and a 4G astro-turf.

Current Developments

Our wonderful brand new facilities in combination with fast-growing partnerships with local sports organisations means it is an exciting time to be involved in PE and Sport at Quintin Kynaston. We have become very well positioned to identify and develop a range of talents and to also ensure all our students can enjoy regular sports participation inside and outside of school time.

During years 7-9 students enjoy a weekly double PE lesson during which they learn to perform, skills, tactics and strategies across a range of disciplines including swimming, games, gymnastics, athletics and fitness. In addition to improving performance, students are taught how to officiate and improve their leadership skills. Students gain an excellent understanding of how to exercise safely and independently, and learn the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle.

In year 10 students will have the option of Studying PE and Sport at examination level. The department offers both BTEC sport and GCSE PE. In year 12 students can study a Level 3 Btec Sport course if they wish to study sports performance at a higher level and this option suits students who wish to either work in the sports and leisure industry or further their sporting interest at university.

Years 8 and 9

Enrichment and Extra-Curricular  

Quintin Kynaston firmly believes in a ‘Sport For All’ approach whereby all students can participate and compete in their favoured sports. Students have the opportunity to compete regularly in inter-form sports competitions and there are opportunities to represent the school regularly across a range of sports.  Quintin Kynaston has formed a reputation across London for its emerging basketball programme, students are fortunate to benefit from having a highly regarded full-time basketball coach working within the PE department and our basketball teams have recently enjoyed success competing at national level competitions. In addition to basketball, our students benefit from an exciting and growing community football programme which provides our students with competitive weekend football opportunities; Quintin Kynaston have a number of teams who compete in the weekend Regents Park Football League. Recent highlights have also included successes within Table-Tennis and Dance.

Quintin Kynaston champions those students who are keen to develop their leadership skills and many key stage 3 students have taken advantage of our young sport leaders programme which provides opportunities for students in years 7-9 to support primary school events in the local community. Being involved in the QK sports leaders programme has proved excellent preparation for students to progress to enrol in the Duke of Edinburgh programme in year 10.
