A Halesowen school has become one of the first in England to win a national award after showing a commitment to developing its student’s sporting abilities.
Windsor High School has become one of only 104 schools in the country to receive the School Games Platinum Award.
The award is part of the School Games Mark – a programme which rewards schools for a commitment to the development of competition across schools and the community.
As part of the award’s marking criteria, a school’s PE provision is graded bronze, silver or gold, and from this year, schools who have achieved five successive gold awards can reach platinum level.
Windsor High School’s headteacher, Stephen Lanckham, said he was “delighted that we have received the platinum award as a result of many years of successful commitment to school sport and out of hours activities for our students.
“Having achieved some strong academic outcomes again in the summer, this validates our belief in developing both our students’ academic and personal potential.”
