Calling all Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland Schools!

Round One

The first round of Battle of the Schools ran during the Autumn. The challenge was to finish 2016 with the most sign ups to the site.

Congratulations to the staff at John Ferneley College who won the first round of Battle of the Schools by finishing 2016 with 64 users on the Workplace Challenge. They win £250 of sports equipment for their PE department!


Still want more? Round Two

The Activity Log Challenge running from 4th Jan-28th Feb 2017 is another opportunity for your school to win an additional £250 worth of sports equipment. Just log as many activities as possible by the end of February!

The theme of this years challenge is 'Active Lunch'. 10 minutes is all you need to a healthier, happier you!

To get involved simply:

1. Get active - every 10 minutes count, try fitting some bite size activities around your working day.

2. Log all your activity at www.workplacechallenge.org.uk/lrsport or using the iPhone or Android app - remember, activity makes points and points make prizes!

3. Track your progress and compete for fun on the Workplace Challenge individual and workplace leaderboards.

The most active school (the school that logs the most activity) at the end of the 8 weeks (28th February) will have the chance to win another £250 of sports equipment. The more individuals you sign up to the challenge, the greater the likelihood of you being the most active setting!

Good luck!

Any questions or queries, please contact Bryany Cornish on info@LRSport.org.


This is a fantastic opportunity for your staff to get recognised for the physical activity that they are already doing, or for those who are not currently active to get involved. Schools have a significant influence on children's early experiences of sport and physical activity. Become a positive role model for your pupils and be in with a chance of being crowned winner of Battle of the Schools 2017!
