The Specialism at Smith’s Wood Sports College

At Smith’s Wood we pride ourselves on providing a broad and balanced curriculum suited to the needs and abilities of all our students. However, we place particular emphasis upon two areas, PE & Sport and Work Related Learning. Together, they are the College Specialism. We believe that the skills and attributes developed in both of these areas can underpin and contribute to learning across the whole college.

Our Mission is to:

  • Further raise standards in PE and Sport and in Work Related Learning
  • Use the specialism to raise standards across the whole college
  • Raise PE & ICT standards in our partner schools
  • Develop learning in PE & Sports across the wider community of Smith’s Wood & Kingshurst


The Work Related Learning Faculty is made up from a number of different, vocational education subjects, including

  • ICT
  • Business
  • Health & Social Care
  • Travel & Tourism
  • Sport
  • Performing Arts (including Drama, Music & Art)
  • Public Services (new from Sept 2012)
