The youngsters gather every Friday morning at 7.45am at nearby Gidea Park Tennis Club, where resident professional Tom Higgins puts them through their paces.

And the sessions, which are for children in form two (seven years old) and above, have proved to be hugely successful.

Teacher Mike Christiansen said: “There has been a remarkable improvement in the skill levels of all of those who are involved.

“Gidea Park Tennis Club have been amazing at ensuring as many children are involved as possible, with some of them also attending the events they host at a weekend and during the school holidays.”

The school’s main team sports are football, cricket, netball and rounders, with athletics, swimming, dance and yoga on the curriculum.
