In the last week of the Autumn Term Crompton House School was presented with the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award by international inline skater Jenna Downing. This was a very well deserved accolade for the school’s PE Department and recognises the high levels participation and success in a wide variety of sports played at school including athletics, badminton, basketball, climbing, cricket, cross-country, football, golf, handball, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby, skiing, swimming, table tennis, tennis, trampolining, volleyball, water-polo. Many of our pupils also participate in other sports outside school including canoeing, cycling, equestrian, sailing, trec, triathlon, wind-surfing and many more.
At the presentation Jenna Downing gave a brilliant motivational talk about her sport, and how it had changed her life. In addition to her international sporting career she achieved a degree in Law at Sheffield University. A fantastic role model for our pupils.
