Why Attend?

The Cycle Coach recognises the challenges schools face in providing diverse sports options for Year 10/11 students studying GCSE PE. In response, they have introduced a tailored cycling programme for UK Secondary Schools. This programme aims to enhance GCSE PE practical performance and is carefully designed to align with AQA, OCR, and EdExcel specifications.

Special Presentation

We’re thrilled to have James Hey from The Cycle Coach present a deep dive into the 6-hour structured programme contributing to the practical performance criteria for GCSE PE. As the visionary behind The Cycle Coach, James is committed to providing a solution for GCSE PE pupils seeking a third sport.

Join us for an insightful discussion and practical track experience covering all aspects of the programme and the essential requirements for the performance assessment, moderated by AQA, OCR, and EdExcel.
