Our Ethos

At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.


We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.

Physical Education

PE Short Course Year 10 and 11

Students develop the key skills of communication and working with others while engaging in the full version of games. They extend their knowledge and understanding of the various roles involved in a chosen activity. Pupils experience a range of exercise activities and develop their thinking skills as they explore how exercise can lead to better physical, mental and social well being.

PE GCSE Year 10 and 11

The GCSE course is divided into two sections:

1) Practical activities which is worth 60% of the overall grade. The four best marks (out of 30) for each candidate will be submitted giving a total out of 120. No more than 3 activities can be ‘games’ based and at least one must be an ‘individual’ activity for example, athletics, dance, swimming.

2) Theoretical components which is worth 40% of the overall grade and includes a 11⁄2 hour exam.
