The silver award is given to schools who can demonstrate a broad and balanced offer of sport and PE which targets all pupils, including those who are less physically active.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme run by the Youth Sport Trust.

Northampton International Academy earned its silver award by providing all students with a minimum of two hours of PE, school sport and physical activity per week, and engaging more than 35% pupils in extracurricular sport and physical activity every week.

It also succeeded in getting at least 10% of pupils identified as less active involved in sport.

The school’s Head of PE Connor Leason said: “We’re really passionate about getting our pupils involved in sport here at NIA, whether that’s through timetabled PE lessons or extra-curricular clubs.

“We work hard to get girls more physically active through the This Girl Can campaign, which has proved really popular, and we have a number of pupils who act as young leaders to help us with our sports clubs and competitions.

“I’m delighted that our commitment to sport and physical activity has been recognised with this silver School Games award and I hope it inspires our students to be even more active.”
