Physical Education

Welcome to Physical Education

Our aim is to ensure students are physically active, have the opportunity to compete and develop teamwork and leadership skills but also develop the knowledge and understanding of the social and physical theories in sport. Throughout their time at Outwood Easingwold, students take part in team sports including football, cricket, netball and basketball as well as individual sports including table tennis and athletics.
