The South East region was crowned overall winners of the Wilkinson Sword, a prestigious trophy awarded to the top-performing region. This achievement was thanks in part to the points accrued from the outstanding individual performances.

Alix Christopher, Physical Education and Sport Teacher expressed immense pride in the students:

It was an honour to have so many Barton Peveril students representing the South East at the AOC Championships this year. The sporting talent on show was incredible, and seeing so many students from all areas of the country coming together to represent their regions and compete just shows how important sport and physical activity is to the student experience. We couldn’t be prouder of our students.

Alix, who is also the Talented Athlete Scheme Career Coordinator and Chair of the Hampshire PE Association, highlighted the importance of such events in fostering a strong sports culture among students. The college eagerly anticipates its turn to display the Wilkinson Sword, a testament to their hard-earned victory.
