With many young people competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions 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:
Madeleine Campbell our Portsmouth PE and School Sport Manager for producing the competitions calendar, all the schools that participate in the local and regional tournaments, our sports leaders and all of our participants across the school.

We look forward to applying once again in 2020!
