SPTA Academy games for Seconday Academies

20th January 2015

As part of a growing competition calendar within the Schools Partnership Trust we are delighted to confirm the date of the annual SPTA Academy Games.

This year’s athletics competition will take place on Wednesday 25th March at The English Institute of Sport, Sheffield.

The competition is split into four categories, Under 13 Boys, Under 13 Girls, Under 15 Boys and Under 15 Girls. Teams should arrive no later than 9:30am to register ready for a 10:00am start and the event should finish around 3:00pm. There is no limit to the amount of pupils in a team.


All Teams can enter 1 competitor per event. Competitors can take part in a maximum 3 individual events plus 1 relay. The events that make up the competition are attached to this letter. The winning boy’s team and the winning girl’s team from both age groups will receive a trophy which they can keep for the year and then brought back the following year to try and retain.

There will also be a trophy presented to the overall winning school combining the 4 teams together. Please be aware that the track events are straight timed races, there will be no heats and finals, therefore competitors are not just aiming to win their individual race but are running to get the fastest time amongst all competitors in their event.

Identifying Teams

Competitors are invited to compete in their school colours however these may be the same or similar to another school, therefore we ask that schools make their own cards with their school’s initial(s) on to pin onto their team members shirts to make the task of identifying competitors easier. Please see attached sheet with the list of schools that have entered along with the initial(s) they have been allocated.

 If you would like to enter your school could you please complete the attached entry form and return it to j.allan@theallsaints.net by Monday 16th March.
