Physical education (PE)
In Core PE, students will study up to 11 different sports across each school year. These sports are: trampolining, handball, rugby, netball, fitness, football, athletics, cricket, tennis, rounders and volleyball.
This broad and balanced offering ensures that students stay suitably challenged while being exposed to sports they may not have learned before and encourages participation in a wide range of activities.
While, each year, students will rotate around the same sports, the level of challenge increases appropriately as students are guided through the complexity that each sport brings. Extracurricular activities compliment the core PE timetable as it changes throughout the season and reflects the competitions the academy competes in across the year. This ensures that students at Retford Oaks Academy are well prepared to compete, as well as participate in a number of inter-school competitions.
