GCSE Physical Education

PE

GCSE PE is an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to further his understanding and skill level in sport. The biggest factor is that pupils get to follow a GCSE subject they thoroughly enjoy. This naturally leads to them working harder and gaining more success, as they are highly motivated towards all the 'work'. It is important to note that this does lead on to A Level Sport Science/Physical Education and many careers such as those students wishing to go into Physical Education teaching, coaching, leisure/tourism administration, and physiotherapy, it is a valid  and credible choice for entrance into Higher Education.
