Bebington High honoured with sports accolades

Bebington High Sports College has been honoured at the 2015 Wirral Sports Awards, bringing home two awards for its sporting success.

Taking place at Prenton Park in Tranmere and hosted by Wirral Sports Forum (WSF), a partnership of local sports teams backed by Wirral Council, the night showcased the hard work of volunteers and sports people at the event, as well as awarding talented young people and schools.

Mark Palios, Chairman of Tranmere Rovers FC and the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Les Rowlands presented the awards on the evening.

Brooke Partington from Bebington High Sports College won the ‘Wirral Young Sportsperson of the Year’ award, for her commitment and expertise in Handball.

Bebington High was also presented with an award for being the only secondary school in Wirral to achieve the ‘School Games Gold Award’ for PE and Sport.

The school was awarded this for demonstrating its commitment to maintaining and developing the highest quality school sport and improving the PE experience for every young person.

Bebington High believe all students should experience challenging and engaging lessons that inspire them to enjoy and commit to lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

As well as recognising performance and dedication throughout the year, bursaries were awarded to 14 athletes to help with training and competing expenses.

Cllr Chris Meaden, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Sport and Culture says: “The Council wants to help foster ambition and achievement in young people, and sport is a great way to do that. Every year we work in partnership with our local sports clubs to give them a voice, supporting the provision of health and wellbeing activities in the borough and at the same time helping our clubs to produce the next big sporting star. I am particularly pleased that bursaries are being awarded to help the development of our young sports people this year.

“The forum is an important asset for the borough, helping us to meet our 2020 Vision commitment for residents to live healthier lives.”
