We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


MORE than 800 pupils are set to take part in the summer finals of the 2013 South Yorkshire School Games.

The high-profile school sports event will take place at Horizon Community College and Shaw Lane Sports Club on July 3.

Schools from across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield will be competing in a number of different sports including cricket, golf, tag rugby and tennis.

Youngsters will be competing for hundreds of medals and the event will be supported by staff and volunteers from across South Yorkshire.

Nick Bowen, chair of South Yorkshire School Games and Principal at Horizon Community College, said: "The games are a fantastic way for pupils across South Yorkshire to take part in competitive sport, showcase their talents, but also learn important values like teamwork.

"We’re extremely proud to be hosting the event in Barnsley for the first time and it should be a great day for all schools involved."

Excellent day all round. Well organised, the kids thoroughly enjoyed the day, the weather stayed nice. The venue was excellent and the staff were curious and professional. It was nice to see all the kids enjoy themselves, they conducted themselves in a positive manner and behaved impeccably throughout the tournament. Credit must go to the organises and the people who worked behind the scenes. Credit too to Nick Bowen who chairs the games. I've heard some very good things about the head of Horizon. The games should be a success with him at the herald.
