On Thursday the 10th of January, forty GCSE P.E. students from Shuttleworth College, myself included, enjoyed a sports trip to Burnley College. The excellent facilities allowed us to pursue many fitness tests and measure our VO2 max, highest power jump, speed, cardiovascular endurance, and much more.

This trip not only helped in practical P.E. but also in theory as the staff at Burnley College also gave us an in-depth explanation of how all the tests work, which we can now use to further analyse our questions in theory work.

We all had an amazing time and on everyone’s behalf I would like to thank Burnley College for giving us this opportunity.
