All schools in England who are registered on can apply for a School Games Mark via their school dashboard.

What is the School Games Mark?

The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels.

The Mark is a retrospective award which will validate your success over the ongoing academic year. Therefore, it's important to familiarise yourself with the criteria documents made available in January each year.

Why should our school apply?

- OfSTED can use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework

- You can proudly display your collateral at your school

- You can use it as a development tool to aid the PE teacher or Headteacher as your school

- You can add the logo to letterheads and email signatures to show your outstanding commitment to school sport.

How does my school apply?

To apply for the School Games Mark Award you must be a registered school on the School Games website. If you're not already registered, the process is simple and can be done by using the navigation option on the right-hand side of this page.

Registered schools will note that the Mark Award portal will open at the start of the given application dates and will allow them to work their way through a simple application form. This process should take approximately 15-20 minutes.

Your application will then be sent on to your SGO and, in some cases, an external verifcation organisation to ensure the legitimacy of your application. Your SGO will also be responsible for the delivery of your collateral, which will be sent to you later in the year. 

In 2016 we introduced downloadable Mark certificates for the first time, allowing schools to access a portion of their collateral as soon as their application has been verified, ready to be printed and displayed proudly at their school.
