How the school context together with the familiar and social constitute the most important context of education continues to be the focus and interest of new investigations. According to these studies we can consider that Physical Education lessons constitute an ideal framework to allow the physical, social and mental development of students, so we should take care of all aspects that contribute to it.
This study was conducted to analyse the relations between motivational climates perceived. To do so a sample of 409 students aged between 12 and 18 years-old was analysed using the questionnaire POSQ. Although the results of the investigations show that girls are less interested than boys towards Physical Education lessons (Moreno, Hellín, y Hellín, 2006; Van Wersch, Trew, and Turner, 1992), aspect that is increased by the age, we should pay more attention to those aspects that interfere in students motivation during the Physical Education lessons, so we can avoid the setback produce by the age.
Results also show that the Ego climate is positively and significantly related to the task orientation. Also boys perceive a climate more directed to Ego than girls. On the contrary, girls perceive a climate more orientated to the task than boys.
