Key Stage 3

The Physical Education faculty is an exciting and popular place at Nova Hreod Academy. At key stage three we offer a wide range of sporting activities. All lessons are delivered practically. Students in key stage three have 2 lessons of PE a week. For those who wish to take their sport to the next level there is an extensive enrichment programme and house sport agenda. We also utilise local coaches and expertise from parents, such as former international athletes and professional coaches in rugby and netball.
