    I would say that your best bet, if you really want to take it, is to enter as a private candidate.

    This is from the AQA website but obviously there are other exam boards to choose from so pick which specification you like best and work from there:

    You'll have to find another school/college to take you (it can't be your own) so decide on what board to take and then start contacting schools about your issue. You will have to pay, however, to enter as a private candidate.

    I'm not entirely sure as to how it would work for a sports GCSE regarding the practical side. It may be, unfortunately, that a school would not be willing to take you as it would mean assessing your practical ability as well as a written exam.

    I wish you the best of luck!
