Physical Education


The Physical Education department at Ebbw Fawr Learning Community is both large and diverse, drawing upon a wealth of expertise and experience from within the immediate department and from academic staff across the school.

Academic PE courses look at developing all aspects of knowledge from the scientific to the sociological. There is certainly a strong influence on personal development with regards to physical fitness, but also in terms of participation and aspirations.
