A high school in Great Cornard is celebrating after landing a top county sports award.
Thomas Gainsborough School was named the Secondary School of the Year in the 2019 Suffolk Sports Awards, organised by Active Suffolk.
The school was highlighted for its specialist teacher training scheme, run alongside Sport England, and its extra-curricular programme, which includes a variety of trips to see elite sporting competitions.

“We shall continue to develop the curriculum and our links with the community and local feeder schools to allow 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.”
