#ThrowbackThursday at Queen Elizabeth’s Academy.

Sport and physical education lessons have come a long way at QEA since these amazing photos from 1920s PE (first photo) and 1904 girls’ high jump (second photo – how did they jump in those skirts!).

Now at QEA we provide a variety of lessons in physical education including sports such as football, netball, rugby, athletics, cricket and tennis, as well as orienteering, lawn green bowls, indoor games and fitness lessons.

We also offer qualifications in sport and health and fitness, teaching essential skills such as training for personal fitness, encouraging sports participation, understanding how the body responds to exercise and the principles of training.
