An Ipswich-based school named after Sir Bobby Robson has announced its first ever headteacher.
A school is celebrating after its inspiring curriculum helped land a prestigious sports award.
Thomas Gainsborough School was named the Secondary School of the Year in last week’s Suffolk Sports Awards, organised by Active Suffolk.
The school was nominated for their work creating an inspiring curriculum as well as running a Specialist Teacher Training Programme alongside Sport England
Ross Myhill, head of physical education at Thomas Gainsborough School, said: “We were delighted to be named Secondary School of the Year and will use the award as a building block to further enhance the education and opportunities offered to students.
“We shall continue to develop the curriculum and our links with the community and local feeder schools to allow even more opportunities for students.
“I am really proud of the team. But this is also a reward for the whole school ethos and the fantastic support we receive.”
The school was highlighted for its inclusive practice run alongside intentionally-developed competitive and elite performance strands as well as an extensive extra-curricular programme, including a variety of trips to see elite sport competitions.
The 14th Suffolk Sports Awards celebrated local sporting heroes across the county during a prestigious ceremony at Milsoms, Kesgrave Hall.
