About the Department

The aim of the PE Department at Rhyl High School is to empower the learners with the knowledge, values, skills and personal qualities to be confident and keen to take part in sport and physical activities. The Department offers a vast array of sporting opportunities for all of our learners. We believe that PE is unique in its ability to develop the 'whole' person. We value high quality PE lessons and the extended curriculum opportunities where our learners' relationships, social development, fun and health are enhanced and promoted.

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”


We also firmly believe that competitive sport and 'opportunities for ALL' can co-exist in a busy school environment.  Community links are an integral part of our school sport with excellent links forged with clubs in the area allowing all pupils the opportunity of a sustained healthy lifestyle.
