PE and Healthy Lifestyle

At Whalley Range 11-18 High School students are given access to a wide range of opportunities to develop themselves in Physical Education, improve their fitness and wellbeing and embrace a healthy lifestyle.

In this section we aim to give you a flavour of the the types of experiences our students can share in and be apart of. For more info on the PE curriculum specifically, including a list of courses, please visit the Physical Education area of our curriculum section.

Sports Leadership

The Sports Leaders Qualification is a nationally recognised qualification, which develops leaders and leadership skills in planning and evaluating sports activities.

Digital Leaders


The Edge is a scheme to develop and accredit students personal attributes that are essential for employability and life. These are skills that employers look for when recruiting employees.

National Qualifications

Over the course of the year, the Year 9 students will participate in a variety of programmes such as This Girl Can, Be the Best and the Dove self-esteem project, alongside physical activities such as Netball, Football, Basketball etc.


Mindfulness, in a nutshell, is being able to focus on the present moment. It can be practised anywhere but preferably somewhere quiet to aid relaxation and reflection. Activities within our “Relaxation” scheme of work are not all focused on mindfulness itself but the activities within allow students to reflect on past, present and future emotions and feelings.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

Students engage in completing their skill, physical, volunteering and expedition sections of this course, through PE lessons and in their own time.
