PE is a compulsory subject for all pupils and they all have access to 4 hours in KS3 and 3 hours in KS4 of high quality PE per fortnight. Pupils may choose PE as a GCSE option in Year 10 which gives them an additional 5 hours per fortnight.

The PE department are very passionate about physical activity and sport believing that there is a sport for everyone. The department prides itself on personalised teaching that gives every pupil the opportunity to reach their full potential through building upon existing skills and excellent assessment for learning strategies.

Students study many sports and theoretical aspects of PE over their 5 years at Acle. We offer a broad KS3 curriculum where students will develop a range of key skills to prepare for GCSE PE. Regardless of whether they take PE as a GCSE PE option they all get the opportunity to gain additional qualifications through the Junior Sports Leaders Award, Junior Football Organiser and Junior Netball Organiser awards in Year 10. Students also have leadership opportunities through the Sports Partnership and have an annual Leadership Academy at the UEA.

By the time they leave school, students will have a good foundation of knowledge and skills that will allow them to make informed choices about their health; well-being and what sports are available to them. We hope they leave with a passion for sport and an enthusiasm to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

As well as a broad curriculum students also have many extra-curricular opportunities. These include lunchtime and after school clubs such as football, rugby, netball, table tennis and dance. All year groups compete with other schools in various formats. These include district leagues, district cups, county and nationals cups in many sports such as football, rugby, tennis, cricket, athletics and cross country.
