GCSE Physical Education

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2018
  • Specification code: 8582
  • QAN code: 601/8279/9

We’ve worked closely with teachers and the Youth Sport Trust to develop a new specification with topics that will help all students to develop a well-rounded skill set and progress to further studies.

The activity list and the practical weighting will be the same across all exam boards, but we’ve worked hard to ensure that our new specification is engaging and our assessment clearer.

There’ll be free resources, events and practical guidance to support you with planning, teaching and preparing your students for assessment.
