The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme which was launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
Last year, we applied for the School Games Mark and achieved a Silver Mark. This was an improvement on our previous year.
In 2015, for the first time, we applied for the School Games Mark. We achieved a Bronze Mark.
The School Games, which is funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.
This programme currently services in excess of 20,000 registered schools who compete across School Games’ competitions.
|The School Games consists of four unique types of competition:|
Level 1: (Intra-School Competition) An intra-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between pupils who attend the same school.
|Level 2: (Local Inter-School Competition) A local inter-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between schools from the same area – either as a one-off fixture or as part of a league.|
|Level 3: (County Finals) A county final is a showcase event held either as the culmination of a series of local inter-school competitions or as open entry events, with invitations made by the Local Organising Committee (LOC).|
|Level 4: (School Games National Finals) The School Games finals: a national multi-sport event where the most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete in our sporting venues.|
