Sainsburys School Games
The school have to deliver level 1 (Intra school) competitions in order to be eligible to compete at Level 2 (inter school) and level 3 (County level) competitions. Level 1 competitions will most probably occur towards the end of half terms and can be through various sports such as Boccia, New Age Kurling and Sports hall athletics.
We currently hold a silver Sainsbury's school games award looking to achieve Gold for 2016.
We have currently been to the Kurling level 2 competition which was held at The Regis school in Bognor. The children that won the kurling level 1 competition in school were selected to come along and take part in the event against other local schools.
It was a very successful day with our year 8 pupils making it to the finals without losing a game and finishing the competition in 2nd place meaning we have made it through to the level 3 competition which will be held in the summer term.
The year 7 pupils also did really well with this being their very first competition against other schools. They enjoyed being a part of a team and playing against different schools.
They should all be pleased with themselves with what they have achieved during this competition.

Living for Sport programme. The PE dept put on a six week sports programme to promote and improve team work, communication and healthy lifestyles. Sky Sports then arrange for a sporting star to visit the school. So far we have had an Olympic medalist Diver, an Olympic Bronze Medallist Hockey player and a European Champion Boxer visit us.
This year 2015-2016 we will have Aaron Phipps Olympic GB wheelchair rugby star come in and talk to the school and lead a small selected group in different activities. This will help with their confidence and leadership skills in the hope they will lead their peers in break time and lunch time activities.

We receive National School Sports Week resources to help us with our festivals and sports days.
As part of the Olympic legacy, St. Anthony's remains linked to the Olympic organisation which provides resources in return for information about what the school delivers as a result of the Olympic Legacy.
Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club
We are privileged to have a positive link with the coaches at Brighton and Hove Football Club. The coaches have an excellent array of qualifications from traditional Football through to Wheelchair sports. The link enables good practice, resources and coaching to be shared, creating opportunities for pupils to experience new sports and engage with other staff.
