Park View in Alum Rock, Birmingham was one of the schools infected during the 'Trojan Horse' Islamisation plot.
It was revealed during a misconduct hearing that that girls had been banned from playing tennis because male teachers “did not want girls to be seen with their bits jumping up and down”.
The comment was made by the school's former principal Monzoor Hussain to school press officer, Susan Packer after she questioned him on why girls had been pulled out of coaching sessions.
Packer told a National College for Teaching & Leadership hearing that she was shocked and felt very uncomfortable with what Hussain told her.
“I did not think it was appropriate for a principal to say that,” she said.
Park View has since been renamed Rockwood Academy, and among 21 schools, it has been dubbed ‘Schools of Tennis’ by the Tennis Foundation charity.
The school will receive £5,000 to train teachers as coaches.
Schools Tennis Manager at the Tennis Foundation, Paul Williams, said: “We’re looking forward to supporting these schools so that they can make tennis more appealing to their particular students and subsequently enjoy all the physical and social benefits which tennis brings.”
The Trojan Horse plot was uncovered in 2014. Muslim parents and governors had attempted to Islamise schools in Birmingham. These infected schools banned holidays such as Christmas and introduced extra Islamic holidays. Students were even sent on pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia.
