GOLD status has been awarded to a school in Brentwood for the way their delivery sport education.
Woodlands School is one of only 70 nationwide who were given the mark in the Sainsbury’s School Games scheme which is backed by the Government.
The school which has campuses in Hutton and Warley was commended for the amount of sporting activity they provide for pupils both in class time and extra curricular.
Paula Hobbs, headteacher of the Hutton Manor campus, said getting awarded the golden standard was a wonderful achievement.
Mrs Hobbs said: “The high level of sporting skill and participation at our schools never ceases to amaze me.
“Whilst many other local schools have achieved either bronze or silver, very few can boast attaining the Gold Kitemark.
“Thank you to all of the staff across both schools who plan and deliver such a high level of sporting provision for our children.”
