"You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get"

- Michael Phelps

Welcome to the PE department at GTS. We are a large and lively department and our primary aim is for all pupils to experience achievement and satisfaction through the challenge of physical activity.  This may be done through a wide variety of opportunities available.

We actively encourage pupils to not only perform in physical activity and sport but also to coach, lead and officiate. Our extensive extra-curricular programme is one that we are always looking at to develop and enhance.
