Berwick Academy Achieves Gold Standard in School Games Mark
We are delighted to announce that Berwick Academy has achieved the School Games Gold Level Mark Award for the 2021/22 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a government-led award scheme that is facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise engagement in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active. We are pleased to have been recognised for our success.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to engage young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school in the community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes including supporting physical development and increasing sporting opportunities. We are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to:
- Active Northumberland
- Berwick Rugby Club
- Leading Link
We look forward to success again in 2023!
