Here at TKASA, Sport is pivotal to the all-round development of our pupils. It provides engagement, responsibility, enjoyment, and a sense of pride in many achievements, regardless of scale or magnitude. The curriculum has been designed to enable our students to take on a variety of challenges to help build confidence, take leadership roles and enable them to work as part of a team.
Our Curriculum has been built on the ideals of a healthy active lifestyle. Throughout, it is firmly believed that everyone has something valuable to offer, and the systems in place aim to encourage general participation in an inclusive programme covering a wide number of sporting opportunities.
Key Stage 3 (Years 7 & 8), students study a broad and balanced curriculum which includes Learning Cycles in Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Fitness and Games. Participating in such a wide range of activities develops competence and confidence and enables our students to succeed.
At Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 & 11), students continue to study Games, Fitness, Athletics and Health Related Fitness, but are given increasingly more choice and variety in their programme. We are also lucky to have strong links with the 1610 Gym on the school site. By having these different opportunities each student is able to discover what they like to do and what their aptitudes are which enables them to make informed choices about lifelong physical activity. Students who choose to study the subject at exam level follow the OCR National Level 2 Sport Science Course.
Students are enriched through a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. The PE department provides after school opportunities to participate in clubs on a recreational basis. It also runs school teams in many major Games, Cross country and Athletics and competes regularly in both the Sedgemoor and District leagues as well as the County cup competitions.
