A Specialist Sports College since September 2002, Dorothy Stringer is on a path which will see it match its outstanding academic record and achievements with excellence in the field of PE and Sport. For us, excellence in PE and Sport is child centred. We will ensure that all students are encouraged to develop according to their individual needs and aptitudes. Our aim is to maintain and stimulate the students interest in and enjoyment of Physical Education and to promote health and fitness for current and future lifestyles. We are committed to the idea that physical well-being and intellectual development are inseparable. Healthy body, healthy mind: we want to make this a reality at Stringer Dorothy Stringer intends to develop skills, identify talent and provide opportunities for all pupils of all abilities to reach their full potential in Physical Education. As a Sports College, the curriculum is designed to raise and sustain student achievement in Physical Education and Sport across the ability range by having a varied, purposeful and enjoyable experience, which provides each and every pupil with a sense of achievement and a positive attitude. With its focus on teaching and learning and on the importance of being itself a 'learning organisation', our school will strive to develop and promote excellence in PE and sport.
