Congratulations to all 19 schools who took part in the inaugural virtual London Youth Games competition! This event ran for 4 weeks and offered a choice of 3 challenges per week, which were devised by young people from different London boroughs; tasks varied from specific sports skills, to endurance activities and dance.

Some challenges asked for scores and others were measured purely according to participation levels for each borough. Over the 4 weeks a total of 972 students from both primary and secondary schools in Sutton registered their participation and took on the various challenges. On the final leader board Sutton ended up in 17th place out of 33 London boroughs! This is a great start to what will be the manner of competitions going into the Autumn term.

The two winning schools with the most number of participants were St Philomena’s Catholic Girls School and All Saints Carshalton. Each school will be awarded a plaque in September to celebrate their achievement.
