Award Winning Physical Education
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
We have had a huge array of sporting achievements this year including our National Futsal Cup success. We have entered into various local/district tournaments and begun to develop our inter-school competitions. We are extremely proud of our students for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including our extensive leadership opportunities, and to students and extended staff who helped to officiate making these competitions for us and a host of middle and lower schools possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to the PE department for their work this year and for the time they have given to all of our young people. Without their unwavering dedication to the ‘extra-curricular’ life of the school, awards such as this would not be possible.
