The Bowden House Physical Education department aim to provide a challenging, disciplined and safe environment for high quality learning and teaching. Pupils should experience a balance of activities which has the necessary coherence and breadth to develop the Curriculum. These lessons are lead by the Head of Physical Education James Das, Head of education Chris Dunsdon and assisted by Mikey Day, Frank Foster and Richard Foster
Progression should be evident as the pupil passes through key stage 3 to 4 with an extended choice of activity to ensure the pupil is offered a stimulating and relevant school choice in PE.
By the end of their physical education at Bowden, the pupil should have developed a personal commitment to, and genuine passion for, maintaining their health and well-being into adult life.
At Bowden house we incorporate a We not Me philosophy to help students develop a community based ethos towards each other.
At Bowden House we engage in off site school fixture and trips working closely with Brighton and Hove Albion football club and local schools in the surrounding area. The PE department offers Games lessons to encourage a more relaxed fun experience as well as running the Physical Education GCSE and the Junior Sports leadership award.
