The Kingswood Secondary Academy Physical Education Department is a strong team of staff with diverse talents in both teaching and learning and coaching. The department is committed to providing an opportunity for all to develop their skills, understanding and improve their access to sporting opportunities.
In the curriculum, we make use of our fantastic facilities by teaching a range of activities that challenge students to learn and develop in a variety of ways. We have a comprehensive extra-curricular programme offering a diverse range of after school clubs. Furthermore, we also have coaches from around the community coming in to the school to support clubs such as rugby and table tennis.
