A fundraising appeal has been launched by Debden Park High School to raise £5,000 to buy trampolines and associated equipment.
The school has had a successful link with Loughton Flyers, which owns the trampolines, for many years however the imminent closure of the club means the school needs to raise the money needed to buy the trampolines along with the wheels, index tables, push-in mats and numerous safety landing mats.
Trampolining is very popular at the school with many students opting for it at GCSE and A-Level, with excellent success rates.
The school has also achieved success in a number of competitions with students being placed extremely well.
The extra curricular club runs daily after school from September to March and is packed with students wanting to practice.
With such excellent equipment available, the school has also been able to invite primary schools in to use the trampolines.
Debden Park High School's Head of PE, Jen Perry, said: "Trampolining has become such a huge part of our curriculum, the students love it, that we can't let the equipment go.
