Subject Leader: Mr Michael Keady
Based on the PE and sports provision that we offer at O.L.I, we have retained our Gold School Games Mark for the academic year 2022/23 for the fifth year in a row and as a result we successfully applied and achieved the Platinum award. This is an amazing achievement which we are very proud of and celebrates the high [profile of PE and sport that we have as a school and confirms the excellent standards of physical education at our school.
Throughout the year, we regularly participate in inter-school competitions and festivals through our Kingston Schools Sports Partnership. We have taken part in events across a variety of sports such as football, basketball,netball tennis, cricket, tag rugby, hockey, athletics, cross country and many more. We also take part in events and enrichment opportunities through our sports partnership with Richard Challoner secondary school.
Previously O.L.I. have been the holders of the prestigious Borough Sports Participation Trophy, winning this accolade in 2018/19 and 2019/20 (the last two years which this trophy has been awarded). In addition to inter-school competitions, we frequently hold intra-school competitions and organise inspirational sports outings and visits such as watching the ATP Finals at the O2 and hosting former international gymnast Steve Frew.
We regularly celebrate sports participation and achievements in school in a variety of ways, which include Collective Worship, our school website, social media channels and our school newsletter. Also, we regularly add information to our school's page on the School Games website including sports-based blogs written from pupils and teachers alike. In fact O.L.I have in recent years won blogging awards for write-up based on sports events in which we have participated in. This page contains information on the inter-school sports events which O.L.I competes in. Click on the link below to visit our page.
