In Sports Studies, we aim to enable students to develop and apply knowledge of sports-related activities, with a particular focus on officiating. They explore contemporary issues in sport, different ways of being involved in the sports industry, and the impact of sport on wider society. In order to facilitate the development and progression of our students we focus on the following areas:
Students will learn more about different leadership roles and styles. They will then go onto to plan and deliver effective and safe sessions and evaluate their own performance.
Students will be required to develop their skills, techniques and use of tactics/strategies/compositional ideas in both an individual and a team sporting activity. Pupils will also improve their understanding of the rules to allow them to act in a number of officiating roles within an activity.
