Academic Enrichment & Extension Opportunities


Coaching in lower schools is an additional opportunity that pupils can take on - supporting in lower schools for sports days and events ran at SWA by the Redborne sports partnership. In events ran by SWA the pupils have been brilliant in helping support events with coaching and refereeing.

Sixth Form Academy Courses:

Pupils have the opportunity to participate in the football, rugby and netball courses ran by the PE department alongside their studies. The majority of these pupils come from BTEC sport. Pupils have the opportunity to represent the school at a number of other sports besides the sports courses including basketball, athletics and hockey.


Future Options & Career Opportunities:

Studying Physical Education at A Level will open many doors for you. Whether it be studying a related degree at Higher Education or accept an apprenticeship in the leisure industry. Many of our previous pupils have gone on to read Sport and Exercise Science at top institutions in the country or pursued careers in teaching, coaching or professional sport. Others have gained jobs in the leisure industry, recreational management, or the health and fitness industry by using the skills they developed throughout the course.
