King Edward VI School, in Bury St Edmunds, has achieved the gold seal of approval from the Youth Sport Trust for the second consecutive time.
The Sports Gold Partner Status recognises the school’s curriculum, teaching, links with primary schools, more than 65 teams and clubs, 14 PE and sport related trips and visits as well as international links plus 22 community club partnerships.
Matt Edison, Bury Rugby First Team captain, Bury Schools Partnership primary school sport coordinater and former student, presented the accolade on Monday.
Gary Clarke, head of PE, said: “This is an award for our students, parents and community clubs as much as it is for us as a PE and sport team.
“We pride ourselves on aspiring to be the best and we’ll never stop doing that.
“Our young people are the next generation of leaders as well as sportspeople and this is something which drives us to ensure that every child gets the best possible opportunities.”
