We are delighted to announce that John Wilkinson School has been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for 2017/2018 - our second year running! This reflects the high levels of participation of our children in extra curricular sporting activities each week, our involvement in inter school competitions and sports leadership programmes within school.  A HUGE thank you to all the sports coaches and children who made this amazing achievement possible.  Well done to you all!

Bronze ambassador training:

Our 4 year 6 bronze ambassadors, Elinor Willis, Sienna Turner, Jason Bristow and Charlie Brennan recently undertook sports leadership training at William Brookes School.  Working with other bronze ambassadors, they learned and led various Paralympic games in order to plan their own Paralympic tournaments in the new year for Ms Black's class.  Well done to them all!
