100% Sports & Education Centre is a specialist sports and education AP designed to instil positive social, academic and sporting impacts for all our students – as they are at the heart of what we do. We seek to empower our students and develop well-rounded leaders through our unique and applied programmes. 100% SEC provides opportunities to study towards a GSCEs/ BTEC Sports qualification, whilst partaking in practical, sport-related activities and learning.
The 100% SEC programme provides students real life experiences of working within the sport sector with clear and direct post-16 routes and Academy programmes, coaching or employment.
The curriculum offers both non-formal theory and practical activities aiming to help students re- engage in learning and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for employment in the sports sector as well as provision designed to help students develop their English, Maths and ICT skills.
The centre is based at Barking Rugby Club and is run by Eugene Dwaah who heads up the Evolution Sports Group. Its governance lies with Mayesbrook Park School and the interim Management Committee comprises members of the LA Inclusion teams, rugby Club representatives, Headteachers and Pat Hayes from Be First.
