Silver School Games Award

What is the School Games Mark?

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.


The Mark is a retrospective award which will validate your success over the ongoing academic year. Therefore, it's important to familiarise yourself with the criteria documents made available in January each year.
