Description

At Cambridge Home School Online, we teach a well-rounded physical education/sports science curriculum. Students learn the theoretical and practical aspects of anatomy, physiology, and contemporary sports studies. They also understand the importance of developing strong movement skills. Our MA/MSc/PhD qualified teachers build a strong foundation, enabling students to apply their theoretical knowledge and improve their performance.

Students are encouraged to engage in individual sports, team events, games, outdoor activities, and related excursions. This course is strongly recommended to students who wish to pursue a career in sports development, coaching, recreational management, professional sports, or the leisure industry. The syllabus is designed to help students develop strong problem-solving and comprehension skills. They also understand the socio-cultural, physiological, and psychological factors that affect physical education. Students attempt four papers.
