Physical Education

PE Department ethos

Physical Education is one of the most powerful mass movers in changing and improving the lives of young people. As such, a key aim of the physical education department is to develop a strong sporting culture within school for both participation and excellence, for all pupils. Through this culture we aim to create a sporting habit for life.

As a department, we aim to develop pupils who are physically literate. We aim to do this by providing a challenging, disciplined and safe environment for high quality teaching and learning. This is achieved through creating an enjoyable and productive atmosphere for staff and pupils, where we strive to inspire and engage students to participate and achieve. This will enable all pupils to have the motivation, confidence, understanding, knowledge and confidence to make positive lifestyle choices and choose to be active for life.

Extra Curricular Sport

We are very proud of the sporting tradition at DGSB and this is largely due to the extra curricular programme that is well attended by so many. Competitions are entered at district, county, regional and national levels with success, across a wide variety of sports:




Cross Country




Indoor Rowing

Rugby Union



Inter-House Sport

There are many opportunities for all pupils to represent their house in sporting acitivities throughout the academic year. By doing so team spirit is greatly fostered as pupils from different year groups unite to achieve the goal of becoming House Champions.
