Edmund Rice has a strong and dedicated PE Department which is staffed by teachers who foster team spirit, co-operation, honesty and integrity, whilst delivering the prescribed programmes of study in Physical Education. In the recent Inspection report PE was recorded as ‘very good.’

Key Stages 3 and 4

All students at Edmund Rice are allocated periods in their timetable for PE. In Year 11students can opt to do Sports Studies as a GCSE subject, and in Year 13 & 14 they can study Sport at National Level 3 which is equivalent to an A Level and is recognised by all the Universities. In Years 13 & 14 the boys are joined by pupils from Our Lady of Mercy.

After School Activities

The PE Department is at the centre of our range of extra-curricular activities. The sports activity programme gives the pupils an opportunity to develop personal and social skills as well as pursue sporting interests. There is a very strong tradition of sport and there is a sense of pride in the pupil when representing the school in any sport.
