We have achieved a Gold Sports mark through the Merton School Sports Partnership with which we have been affiliated for a number of years which run many of the sports festivals that the children take part in, provide Gymnastics sessions at school, as well as provide professional development for staff. We are absolutely thrilled to continue achieving gold having met some very tough criteria!
