With less than a year to go to the London Olympic Games, many schools in our region, including Wickersley School & Sports College, have signed up to the School Games programme, which aims to boost the existing work in school sport to create a year-round calendar of competition for pupils of all abilities.

The inaugural national finals will take place in the Olympic Park in May 2012. Schools can register by visiting

Furthermore, thousands of tickets for next year’s Games will be distributed through the London 2012 Ticketshare initiative, for free, to schools and colleges that have applied to be part of the London 2012 Get Set Network by Friday 16 December 2011.

I would encourage all local schools to take their chance of free tickets for the Olympic or Paralympic Games by registering with the Get Set Network. For further details on how to apply please visit
