SAINT Nicholas School has achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2022/23 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 the school is delighted to have been recognised for our success.
A spokesperson said: “Our sporting achievements this year have included over 35 competitions and festivals entered across Key Stage 1 and 2, and medals achieved in rugby, cross country, netball, futsol, football, netball and swimming to name but a few. With over 100 of our fantastic pupils competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of them all 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.
“We look forward to applying once again in 2024”.
It's a fee-paying school for the wealthy. You'd hope everything it does is at the "gold standard"...
