Top state sports schools of 2016

 

Dozens of national competitions have been completed and hundreds of schools have turned in a series of remarkable sports results after months of hard work.

 

School Sport Magazine has shut its eager researchers into a dark room to work out the country’s best of the best state schools of 2016.

 

So congratulations to winners Coopers Company and Coborn School, who have finally reached the summit after consistent top five finishes over the last three years.

 

The Essex school reached the final stages of national athletics, badminton, gymnastics, tennis, swimming and cross-country competitions to cap another successful all-round year.

 

Well done too to second-placed Northampton School for Boys, who were knocked off their 2015 top slot but still managed to be crowned national football champions, national basketball runners-up and reach the final stages of athletics, rugby and cross-country competitions.

 

Congratulations also to Yorkshire’s South Hunsley School in third, who have burst into the top three after 16th and 13th places in 2014 and 2015.

 

And cheers to Aylesbury Grammar School and Arden Academy, Solihull, who have surged into the top 100 in style for the first time, finishing fourth and fifth respectively.

 

Hats off also to the other 27 teams who have made it into the top 30 of our fourth annual chart – not to mention the hundreds of others schools that haven’t made the list this year but are still providing excellent competitive opportunities for their pupils.

 

An indication of just how difficult it is to reach the list can be seen when you realise that reaching the top 30 means you are in the top 1% of sporting schools in the country while the top 100 represents the top 3%.

 

Our top sporting state schools of the year reflects competitive achievement in a range of sports throughout the 2015/2016 school year and honours those schools that take competitive sport especially seriously.

 

Based on 20 different sports and more than 120 different national competitions, more weighting is given to success in a range of sports rather than single sports as well as competitions with more teams competing.

 

Don't miss our top independent sports schools of 2016 which will be revealed in our January edition.
