Personal Development, Health and Physical Education

The aim of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) curriculum is to develop in each student the knowledge and understanding, skills, values and attitudes needed to lead healthy, active and fulfilling lives.


This syllabus is directly concerned with supporting the development of the student as a whole person.

St Nicholas of Myra provides intensive gymnastic & swimming lessons taught by trained and qualified instructors.

PDHPE is an important Key Learning Area as it:

  • encourages an understanding and valuing of self and others
  • promotes physical activity
  • emphasises informed decision-making leading to effective and responsible action

Come and see learning in action at St Nicholas of Myra!

We’d love a chance to show you how learning works for young people in our school. Our dedicated teachers plan the learning in detail to help each student do their best.
