Physical Education

The broad and balanced Physical Education curriculum at Weatherhead enables all students to enjoy and succeed in physical activity. Our dedication to participation and performance allows us to develop the WHOLE child in EVERY child and we aim to provide opportunities that will develop knowledge, skills, values and confidence and to foster a life-long love of physical activity in all students.

Extra-Curricular

A wide range of extra-curricular clubs are offered to students of all abilities and they are actively encouraged to attend. A substantial number of students play competitive games within the school in Inter-Form and Rounders tournaments. Others play for the school teams, competing with schools on Wirral and further afield, with notable success nationally in Football, Gym and Trampolining.

Specialist coaching sessions are also run through the Gifted and Talented initiative, enabling students to benefit from expert knowledge and further improve their skills, delivered by such partners as Everton Football Club and Steen Sports.

Sports Council

The Sports Council is hugely successful in encouraging pupils to become involved in whole school initiatives regarding Physical Education and Sport. We have a Head Sports Captain from Year 13 and they are supported by fellow Year 12 and 13 students. They work very closely with the PE Department to help arrange and organise events such as Interform and Sports Day.
