General Introduction

PE and Games lessons at Ada Lovelace take place throughout the day as Core Electives (a double period) and Extended Electives (after-school sessions). This allows time for students to fully engage with competitive matches. Specific skills are taught and students learn how to adapt these skills into game situations.
