Bolton School Boys’ Division has, once again, received a Gold Mark Award from School Games. The School has won the award for 2021-22 but has also picked up the prize on several previous occasions, the last time being in 2018-19. The report from the School Games’ team said that the certificate was awarded for the School’s commitment and engagement in the School Games’ programme.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Registered schools apply annually through a short application form which is then verified by their local School Games Organiser (SGO).

School Games aims to provide every child with a positive experience in an environment where the young person’s motivation, competence and confidence are at the centre of the competition. The government led scheme is funded by Sport England National Lottery funding and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust and is designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.

A network of SGOs and School Games County Alliances have worked alongside the Youth Sport Trust in delivering three distinct levels of competition since the Games' inception in 2010 - ranging from intra to inter school activity, in addition to the National Finals, which is supported by National Governing Bodies.

The School will also receive a plaque for display.
