The school has been using Dartfish since becoming a Sports College in 2003. The lead inspector wrote the following in the recent OFSTED inspection, ‘The use of ICT and specifically Dartfish particularly impressed inspectors, both in the sophistication of the package in helping students evaluate their own performance rapidly and thus understanding how to achieve higher standards with the very effective involvement of the PE technician and the students themselves, in confidently using ICT to record and evaluate performance. The learning support and the student involvement, participation and understanding were of a very high quality.
Dartfish is used at present in several areas of the curriculum, Design Technology, Geography, Maths, Science and Art.

The Deanes School is an affiliated specialist sports college in Benfleet, Essex. At present it has around 1200 students on roll from ages 11 – 16. The Deanes School got its name from its location: it was built on the northern edge of West Wood. During the 16th century West Wood was known as The Deanes Wood because it belonged to the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral. This land is still owned by the Church of England and is leased to Castle Point District Council. When the school was opened in 1971 the old name for the wood was adopted. www.deanesschool.co.uk/

Two Trees Sports College - Tameside Dartfish AcademyContact: Tony Dennis
Telephone: 0161 3362719
"Dartfish has revolutionised our teaching. Pupils love to watch their performance and can instantly see areas in which they can improve. They are also eager to coach each other and comment on how friends could improve their performance. The software and remote control are incredibly easy to use and mean that Dartfish does not obstruct teaching. In fact it has meant that pupil activity levels have increased in lessons as feedback is instant.
The support offered by the Dartfish staff has been superb throughout with school visits and also individual technical support. Many Thanks to all the Dartfish team."
