GCSE PE and outdoor sports (2017+)

With all the new changes that have come from both the Department for Education as well as the examination bodies it is tricky to understand what is actually required for assessments in GCSE rock climbing, kayaking and canoeing.

Below is what the new assessments actually mean and gives some guidance on what a high level performance looks like. Believe it or not some elements of the assessment have actually got easier! I hope that by reading this you will gain a better understanding of what the different examination bodies require and which of these can be done as a part of an intensive course at Bowles.
