Carlton le Willows Academy

Nothing but the best


Head of Department: Mr Mountain (

At Carlton le Willows all students take part in a broad and balanced range of PE lessons throughout years 7 to 11 as part of the National Curriculum. Our extracurricular options are varied and exciting and we also offer the opportunity to continue PE in the sixth form.

We are very lucky to have fantastic facilities at Carlton le Willows, the latest being the Table Tennis centre, with fields including rugby, football and American football markings, a sports hall, running track, two gymnasiums and a large netball/tennis court area.



In Years 7 to 9 students will be taught the principle of Physical Education through a range of activities typically within two lessons per week. These include, but are not limited to, football, handball, netball, gymnastics, dance, trampolining, rugby, badminton, basketball, athletics, cricket and rounders. In every year group there is the opportunity to develop skills in physical activities as well as experiencing different roles: performer, coach and official. We will also introduce some theory lessons to educate students in healthy lifestyles within extra singe Year 9 lessons.

In Year 9, as part of focus groups, PE offers students the chance to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.


In Key Stage 4, students will continue to take two practical PE lessons each week through Years 10 and 11. They will be given an option of what activities they participate n. They may also be able to complete additional awards eg sports leadership or DofE Silver within curriculum time.

For students who wish to extend their knowledge further, a Cambridge National Sports Science (equivalent to GCSE) option is available. More details can be found by downloading the document below.



At Sixth Form we deliver a Level 3 BTEC National Diploma in Sport. This two-year option has proved successful for several years worth students working towards additional units to increase UCAS points with university applications in mind. This course allows students to sample the wide range of activities and professions that are available in sport.

Students who wish to take up this subject must have a dedicated work ethic, passion for sport and a willingness to engage in the vast range of practical and theoretical topics that make up the course. More information can be found here or by downloading the document below.

Extra Curricular PE 

As well as curriculum lessons there are many extra curricular PE clubs and sports teams to be part of and enjoy. Our expert staff have a range of specialties and endeavour to bring a broad set of experiences to all within the school.

We also put on educational visits with our teams such as the Spain football trip, Table Tennis Academy, netball and rugby tournaments.

We have many sports teams and we have been extremely successful in football, netball, table tennis, cross country and badminton, but are always striving for our next opportunity.

Expectations in PE lessons 

Please note:

*Students will be expected to wear shorts for all indoor activities, the only exception to this rule is for religious observance, and for safety and comfort whilst trampolining.

* Students can wear tracksuit bottoms for outdoor activities during the winter (October until Easter). 

* Students in Key Stage 3 have two PE lessons per week (a single lesson of 50 minutes, plus a double lesson).  It is crucial for personal hygiene that students have a change of socks for PE.  We suggest students wear the compulsory LONG BLUE SOCKS for outdoor lessons and bring sport socks for their single lesson.

* BASELAYER BOTTOMS/SPORTS LEGGINGS and BASELAYER TOP provided by uniform stockists are plain navy.  Students can wear alternative baselayers/sports lycra leggings, however they need to be PLAIN navy.  (No large logos).  Students are not permitted to wear ‘everyday’ leggings under any circumstance.

On the grounds of Health and Safety we ask:

  • All students to tie their hair up for practical PE lessons
  • A note from parents is required if a student is unable to participate in a PE lesson.  Students must still bring PE clothing so they can still access the curriculum (e.g. an officiating or coach role). Students who cannot join in practically will remain with the class, so a change of clothes is essential if the weather is poor and learning is taking place outside
  • A letter from a GP or consultant must be provided if a student is to be excused for a sustained period of time
  • Students cannot wear jewellery for PE, that includes earrings taped up as per whole school policy

Students cannot wear acrylic nails as per whole school policy.
