National Schools Games Award for Health Academy

The Sports Education team at Manchester Health Academy are celebrating after being awarded the National Bronze Mark from School Games for the first time.

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.

This award recognises the excellence in inter/intra school competitive sport and opportunities for sports leadership.

Health Academy Head of Physical Education, Stewart Brown commented “I am really pleased the department has been given this award for the first time. Within our development plan we intend to be awarded both the Silver and Gold Games Mark award within the next two years”.

Health Academy Principal, Mr Owen, commented “It’s fantastic to see the hard work and commitment of our P.E. team being recognised nationally.  Their efforts in developing competitive sport within the Academy and with our Partnership Primary schools are making a real difference to the health and wellbeing of our students.”
