Secondary School Design: Physical Education.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
Current trends in physical education in secondary schools in England are analysed in relation to the design of indoor physical education facilities. Spaces needed for the study of movement in dance and modern gymnastics are outlined; and the indoor provisions necessary for games, athletics, contests, and swimming are discussed, with comments on the dimensions, wall and floor finishes, lighting and heating required. The balance of accommodation is considered with special attention to joint use by the school and the community. Diagrammatic illustrations supplement the discussion throughout. (FS)
