PE & Sport
PE and sport are taught in broad and balanced curriculum which includes GCSE qualifications.
There are a wide range of activities to suit everyone. For those who want to participate in order to have fun and improve fitness there are many clubs during and after school. There are also squads that train in order to represent the school. However, it is the elite coaching in football and cricket which makes PACA the school of choice for those serious about progressing in these areas to a competitive standard. PACA students also have opportunities to develop leadership skills through delivering sports sessions in local primary schools.
There is an annual PE Sports Awards Ceremony which celebrates and rewards students on participation and excellence. Students are awarded with trophies as well as sports colours for commitment and participation.
Sport options available include: Athletics, badminton, basketball, boxercise, cheer dance, cricket, dance, fitness, football, golf, gymnastics, hockey, KS3 dance academy, mountain biking, netball, rock climbing, rounders, rugby, stoolball, table tennis, trampolining, ultimate frisbee, volleyball and yoga.
