Key Stage 3 Physical Education
Sport is an important dimension to life at Ermysted’s, with all pupils at Key Stage 3 receiving at least two and a half hours of PE or games a week. We believe it is important that young people enjoy physical exercise and understand the health benefits of being active, promoting an active and balanced lifestyle. Most of all we want pupils to enjoy their sport and to work hard at whatever level they play. We actively encourage all pupils to participate in the extensive extra-curricular program on offer.
