Why have we won these awards?
Our aim last year was to become an outstanding department and this is what we wanted to achieve.

What led to our department being outstanding?

  • Shared vision

 We applied for the prestigious AFPE National Quality Mark which recognises an outstanding department. The PE department achieved this quality mark award with Distinction - the first school in Essex to do so. We were also named to be the college to present to other schools in Essex for outstanding practice. 

What our department wanted to achieve to be outstanding:

  • Raise the profile of physical education and sport at a local, regional and national level
  • Involve individuals and groups in recording and celebrating success so that the school ‘stands out from the crowd’
  • Recognise best practice in physical education and sport and provides a platform for sharing excellence and success
  • Promote a positive message to the local community
  • Celebrate excellence in the organisation, management and delivery of physical education and sport

Mr Bibby, Mr Rouse, Mr Chinnery, Mr Masters, Mr Wiper, Mr Ormerod, Mr Clements, Mr Welch, Mrs Flynn, Miss Skinner, Miss Bysouth, Miss Mankee, Miss Hill and
