The event was coordinated by Get Berkshire Active, local School Games Organisers and event lead Sarah Taylor who has been at the heart of School competitions in the county for a number of years.

Mrs Taylor said “The event is a great example of a school sport festival which is run by young people, for young people.

“The roles of the young leaders are key to a successful event. Schools across the county provide pupils to help behind the scenes whilst setting up the event and officiating through the day to ensure it is a success.”

A special mention must go to Greenham Common Trust, Ascot Charitable Trust and Berkshire Community Foundation who continue to support the Berkshire School Games and ensure that the event can take place twice per year.
