PLATINUM FOR PE
Two reasons for our PE Department to celebrate today. Not only is the roof now on the Sports Hub but they have also retained the School Games Mark Platinum Award. Only three per cent of schools in England hold the award, which recognises a school’s commitment to the development of competition within the school and into the community. Director of Sport, Jamie Harrison said the award reflected the “…commitment, effort and enthusiasm shown by staff day in and day out, which allows Gordon’s School students to take full advantage of all the wonderful sporting opportunities offered to them.” Gordon’s currently offers dozens of different sporting and adventurous pursuits and has a proud heritage for producing sportsmen and women at county; national and international levels. Students compete in a range of competitions and events in many sporting disciplines including equestrian; rowing and karting. The new sports hub will enable students to take part in even more competitive events and extend the range on offer.
