Worthing High receives Gold Sports Mark
Worthing High School is very proud to have achieved the Gold Mark for the second year running.
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.
Worthing High School is very proud to have achieved the Gold Mark for the second year running. Head of PE Miss Field said: “We are always striving to improve our PE provision across the school and increase both participation and competition. This mark has given us a positive framework to work towards and we are delighted to have achieved the gold standard.”
Pan Panayiotou, Headteacher said: “To achieve Gold status we had to evidence that the school provides all students with two hours of physical education within the curriculum per week and that we have a broad programme of extra curriculum provision. We also had to show we engage at least 50% of our students in extracurricular sporting activity every week and that we offer talented young sports people specific support to help them to balance their sporting commitments with school and home life. We are very proud of the award as it recognises our commitment to physical education at Worthing High.”
