This course is targeted at GCSE (AQA and EDEXCEL) and BTEC students and is proving to be highly successful. We have been externally moderated twice in 2013 for GCSE.
The course is held over a period of 6-8 weeks (6 hours minimum). Students are assessed throughout and are examined on completion of the course whereupon they are awarded their final mark.
The course offers students an exciting alternative to the more familiar sports and enables them to grasp the basic concepts of judo whilst acquiring the necessary technical skills.
Though it is quite an intense 6 weeks, the students, novices to judo, are able to adequately cover the requirements of the syllabus and can achieve a good standard of judo with good results.
Judo can also be offered to other students as a curricular or extra curricular lunchtime activity (particularly favoured by years 7 & 8) or as enrichment for the sixth form.
Certificates are awarded to all students on completion of the course.
Year 10 boys learning a “basic throw”. This is one of the moves included in the GCSE syllabus.
Year 10 boys demonstrating competitive judo. This is also a requirement where students will be expected to demonstrate their skills on each other competitively.
