We are delighted to announce that Etone College 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 we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
In order to achieve the Gold level our Perform department have worked hard to provide enriching opportunities both as part of our classroom curriculum and extracurricular provision. Whilst there are too many sporting success across the year to mention we would like to share some of the highlights:
- Development of our Girls Football Academy
- Boys Football Academy topping their league and winning the WBA Cup for a second year in a row
- Pupils taking part in charity fundraising through Staff vs Students sport
- Exciting trips and visits including from Stuart Attwell (Premier League Referee)
- Taking part in Go Lead’s: Disney Festival of Football
- Our Year 12’s joining in with Active in Mind to provide support for wellbeing through sport
With many of our pupils competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible. This really does show the resilience and teamwork required as part of our Employability Skills. Additionally the sportsmanship shown by all of our pupils embodies the Etone Values.
We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication our Perform team have put into the provision this year and would like to congratulate them and all of our pupils in achieving this award.
