Sir William Borlase SGO Area

Marlow Area School Games Organiser works with local primary and secondary schools to improve the quality of Sport and PE within schools.

In combination with the Wye Valley (Wycombe) area, we provide sporting competition and opportunity for all those who wish to participate.  From football, to ultimate Frisbee, to cricket, to softball, our offer includes a wide variety of sports and our competition events are coincided with P.E. curriculum to boost participation levels. 

Our Vision: Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best. By 2020 the School Games will be continuing to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people. 

With schools closed until February,  we would like to invite schools to take part in our new Virtual School Games.  Each half term, the team of Bucks & MK SGO will be "running" virtual competitions.  We will have School Games Area winners, 2nd and 3rd places with winning schools in each event being invited to represent the Marlow area at the Level 3 School Games Finals taking place on 1st July 2020 at Stoke Mandeville Stadium. 

There are many benefits of participating in the Virtual School Games as a school. It gives your students an opportunity for all students to participate and represent the school while developing their own skills and achieving their personal best. PE Coordinators will be able to run the competition themselves for the whole class within a PE lesson while choosing team members with the highest scores or can be set as homework. This will also boost participation for your A, B and C teams too!
