Our Ethos

R Smith WebStudents at Mayfield School receive consistent lessons in both Physical Education and Dance. All students are appropriately challenged and have a real desire to achieve, thus enabling them to make outstanding progress.

By the time pupils leave school they will have developed the skills, techniques and confidence needed to perform a range of physical activities, as well as gaining the knowledge and understanding required to induce a healthy, active lifestyle.

Students will have had opportunities to successfully engage in competitive sports to an appropriate level of performance, which in turn will provide the confidence to enable individuals to participate in sport or dance throughout adulthood.

We are excited to announce a new partnership with NASSA Basketball club.  NASSA already deliver coaching sessions throughout the year for students in all year groups. Due to the success of this partnership we will be starting a Sixth Form Basketball academy in September for Year 12 and 13 students. Students in the academy will be able to study a variety of courses including A-Level P.E or BTEC P.E whilst also receiving high quality training sessions from coaches at NASSA and competing in high level competitions.

Students will also have the opportunity to train and play for NASSA’s basketball team at the weekends in the England Basketball National League competitions. This is an exciting opportunity for aspiring Basketballers to gain qualifications whilst doing what that they love.

For more information please contact Mr R. Smith, the Faculty Leader for Physical Education.

Teacher-Student Relationship

Students are assessed through three different tests at the start of Year 7.  These tests determine which groups students will be placed into. There are two groups for boys and two groups for girls; all four groups are of mixed ability.

Students have ample opportunity to pursue an interest in PE, Sport and Dance, as shown by our Extra-Curricular Clubs timetable. Mayfield School hold clubs for all ages and abilities, as well as Academy Clubs, which are for squad players only.

Extra-Curricular Activities

As a faculty the P.E department see Extra-Curricular activities as important ways to encourage students to lead a healthy, active lifestyle, whilst also giving opportunities for our talented athletes to excel. Students that reach a higher level of performance have the opportunity to join one of our sports academies, where more advanced training sessions and opportunities to compete against other schools are provided.
