Our Awards & Achievements
School Games Gold Mark Award
|We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year. The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are overjoyed to have been recognised for our success.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfill criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone within our school has been rewarded this year. We look forward to applying once again in 2020!

Brompton Hall School has been awarded a gold award by the Woodland Trust for getting involved in the Green Tree Schoolsinitiative, which has seen over 7,000 schools sign up since it was launched in 2008.
The scheme promotes a range of opportunities, each designed to stimulate a child’s imagination and sustain their interest in woods and trees. The achievements of the school are recognised through an awards scheme in which they receive points for taking part in activities. As they reach milestones within the project they receive bronze, silver and finally an attractive wooden plaque which acknowledges they’ve achieved the environmental accolade of a gold award.
Brompton Hall School has planted new trees in their school grounds, visited local woods, reduced their carbon emissions and joined in in various other Woodland Trust activities. Congratulations to all involved!
