Physical Education at Bradford Forster Academy
Through teaching with excellence and modelling exemplary behaviour, the PE department strives to challenge, motivate and inspire greatness in our students enabling them to become outstanding and ambitious for themselves.

We build on key skills taught in key stages 1 and 2, with students becoming more competent, confident and expert in their knowledge, understanding and techniques. Students develop their confidence, interest and understanding to engage in competitive sports and lead healthy, active lives in and out of school and in later life.
