Introduction to the subject

Physical Education at Bolingbroke Academy is a structured, multi-faceted environment with a diverse range of opportunities offered to our pupils within curriculum, extra curricular and inter-school environments. We are a well trained and committed department, and expect only the highest standards of behaviour, attitude and effort.

Pupils learn in and outside the classroom in a variety of contexts. We value the impact that sport has in both theoretical and practical settings, something that sets us apart from other schools.

Each department has a 'DNA', that is to say, our vision for that department. The DNA of the P.E Department can be viewed here:

Pupils receive 2 hours of practical PE that is supplemented by as many sporting enrichments as they enter into. Enrichment and competitive sport play a vital role at Bolingbroke Academy, and pupils are offered many opportunities to extend their experiences of sport in inter-school leagues within Wandsworth and in county/ London cups.

In addition to clubs in all of the above sports, Bolingbroke Academy is geographically located to foster great community links. Our pupils also make use of the following Sports in community locations, as after school enrichments:

  • Swimming at Latchmere Leisure Centre
  • Cycling at Herne Hill Velodrome
  • Rowing at Barn Elms
  • Athletics sessions with  Herne Hill Harriers and Fulham Football Club
