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.
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.
