A Level Physical Education

An A Level in Physical Education involves the theoretical and practical study of three main elements - Physiology, Sports Psychology and Social History of Sport. Physiology is the study of the human body and its response to exercise. Sports Psychology is the study of how the human mind can effect sporting performance and Sport and Society develops an understanding of the interaction and the evolution of sport through history to the modern day.

What will I Study: 

At Chichester you will study the AQA syllabus. For Physiology this includes the structure and function of the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory and energy systems, also looking at diet and nutrition and biomechanical principles. Sports Psychology will mainly consist of two elements, Skill Acquisition and Sports Psychology in years one and two respectively. The former will analyse theories of how the human mind develops and is able to reproduce sports specific movements. Whereas Sport Psychology will evaluate how the fundamentals of psychology can influence sporting performance, for example team cohesion and group dynamics. Sport and society focuses on the emergence of modern sport through globalisation of sport in the 21st century, specifically students will understand the impact of social factors on the development of football, tennis and athletics.

How will I be taught: 

The course includes a variety of teaching and learning strategies. These are designed to stimulate learning and to develop key skills for further education and the sporting industry, though theoretical and practical sessions and elements of independent study.

How will I be assessed: 

Through 3 exams at the end of Year 2, coursework and performance analysis. There will be various mock exams to prepare you for your final exams.

A-level Pass Rates

Our overall pass rate for 2016/17: 99.1%

 

Outstanding Grade from Ofsted

The Ofsted inspection in March 2014 graded us 'outstanding' in all four key areas for

  • Teaching, Learning & Assessment
  • Outcomes for Learners
  • Leadership & Management and
  • Overall Effectiveness

In addition, nine subject areas were inspected and received seven 'outstanding' and two 'good' grades, which is the best curriculum inspection grade profile out of seven colleges awarded overall 'outstanding' under the new framework to date.

In order to raise overall standards, the government has introduced changes to A-levels. These changes are still happening, so we've broken down the points you need to know below.

 

What are the changes?

  • A-levels are becoming linear two-year courses, meaning that you will need to study for two full years to gain the qualification.
  • You will only take exams at the end of your second year. In almost all cases, these exams will count for 100% of your overall mark (see point below).
  • Coursework is being removed and will only be considered in exceptional cases. In science-based subjects, practical work will not count towards your final grade, but will be awarded with a separate certificate of endorsement.
  • The content that you are taught in the new linear A-levels will also change slightly.


When are the changes happening?

The new two-year style A-levels are being introduced over a three year period. This started in 2015, so some students will already be studying the new format for certain subjects. The final subjects are to be introduced in September 2017. This is the final phase. All students starting their studies from September 2017 will study the new two-year style linear A-levels for all subjects.
