Wirral school strikes silver
A WIRRAL sports college has struck silver in acknowledgement of its commitment to outside-school sports.
Bebington High Sports College has been awarded the Silver School Games Kite Mark – a nationally recognised accolade, sponsored by a major supermarket.
A college spokesman said: "This is a testament to the immense amount of hard work and enthusiasm shown by the school towards extra-curricular clubs, primary school sports festivals and its support for competitive sports within our community.
"The honour reflects the hard work, commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport from both students and staff at the college."
There has been a massive uptake in extra- curricular spot at the college recently with 50% of students involved in sporting activities.
Around a third of students are involved in school games as leaders and officials and the college has links with 35 local sports clubs – double the national average.
The college is involved in inter-school competition in nine sports and makes extensive use of coaching to improve sporting opportunities for young people.
