It might look as though they’re wearing pyjamas, but you wouldn’t want to mess with these boys.

Pupils in Year 10 at The Warren School, Chadwell Heath, have been taking part in judo sessions run by a specailist coach as part of their GCSE course.

The young warriors train at 1882 Judo Academy, Romford, with some looking set to earn the highest marks available for the practical curriculum unit.

“It has been a pleasure teaching the Warren pupils,” said coach Bill Taylor. “Their enthusiasm from day one has been fantastic.

Year 10 Student Sirhan Ali said: “I’ve really enjoyed taking part in the sessions, it’s really good to be able to try a new sport and then have it count towards my final grade”.

Training in the Olympic sport of Judo at some local schools was made possible through funding from the Sportivate initiative.

PE teacher Andy Borthwick said: “I am extremely proud of the boys, they have shown great motivation and determination to achieve their full potential in GCSE PE.”
