The Physical Education Department’s vision is to provide opportunities for all students, regardless of ability, to achieve, develop and excel in a range of different activities.
In 2014, our Year 9 football team won the Borough League and Cup, London Cup and Essex Cup for the second year running. Our Year 8 girls and Year 11 boys are currently Borough Basketball Champions.
Chingford Foundation boasts excellent sports facilities, with two fully equipped sports halls that accommodate six badminton courts, a full size basketball, netball and volleyball court. Sports facilities include a rowing and fitness room. There are well maintained playing fields for football, rugby, rounders, athletics and an artificial cricket wicket. The hard courts offer two netball, one basketball and three tennis courts.
Extra-curricular activities are open to all pupils and sports teams train weekly. The school is well supported by specialist coaches and through the School Games organiser, pupils have access to inter and intra school competition in over twenty sports. The school is also an accredited centre of sports leadership and pupils are often seen working within primary schools or assisting in organising youth games and competitions across London. At the age of 14 pupils have access to GCSE PE, leadership, coaching and officiating awards and the vast majority of pupils use these qualifications to assist in the delivery of school games and in preparation for A-Levels.
