A Level PE has been really enjoyable for me. I find the course content and my lessons interesting and engaging. I enjoy how current the course content is, studying how sport is changing everyday helps to make it relevant and interesting. My favourite thing about studying A Level PE is that I can use what I am learning to improve my own performance. The physiology side enables me to see the advantages of particular recovery methods or training techniques. I have been able to apply these to myself and I can now notice considerable improvements in my performance.
Since joining Carmel, I have been provided with many opportunities to take part in sport and enrichment and I particularly enjoy being part of the football team. The team train and compete each week and the standard of play is really high. Training sessions are challenging and enjoyable and I feel like I am making progress and developing as a player.
I’ve also been to visit universities and met with people working in elite sport in a number of different roles. These opportunities have not only helped to improve my knowledge of sport and PE but have also aided me massively in deciding my career path. They’ve given me a greater insight into the different career opportunities open to me in the future. Meeting with role models working at the top level in sport has been really inspirational. On the back of these visits, I have decided that I would like to pursue a master’s degree in Sports and Exercise Science.
