The lesson isn't even worth anything and is mostly utilised to curb the supposedly growing amounts of fat, unfit little shits of our generation.
What's even worse is a GCSE (and also A-Level) qualification in PE. This is really nothing more than a tiny part of Biology and is only good for becoming a PE teacher, so you can teach more misguided fools how to become PE teachers, and so on. It's a rather dull cycle.
Most schools have two hours/lessons of PE a week, but some, such as the prison known as Wreake Valley only have one.
Student: "Here it is..."
Note says: 'Dear teacher, my child is unable to participate in today's lesson because she unfortunatly fell down the stairs and broke her arm.'
PE Teacher: "No. You WILL do PE, I don't belive that *gestures to cast on the students arm* that is real. I think you are lying. GO AND DO 500 PUSHUPS YOU LIAR!"
It is not a 'subject' that will be used in life. A situation I am going to use as an example is 'you are at a supermarket, you drop your pasta out of the trolley, what do you do?', The answer is, you bend down and pick it up, (a five year old can do that; you do not need so called lessons for a full 13 years), NOT, you do a sumersalt, then 5 pushups, then 10 starjumps.
