Top three schools in November...

We’re delighted to say there has been no let up with schools clocking up an impressive 5000 miles in September, 12,000 in October and 14,463 in November. Meaning to date pupils have clocked up 31,463 miles of physical activity so far this school year.

The top 3 schools in November that averaged the most Golden Miles per pupil were -

  1. Isham Church of England School, Kettering averaged 6.69 Golden Miles per pupil.
  2. Hollesley Primary School, Woodbridge averaged 5.19 Golden Miles per pupil.
  3. Reedham Primary School in Norwich averaged 4.65 Golden Miles per pupil.

Well done Isham!

Here’s a brain numbing fact for you... 31,463 miles is the equivalent of travelling from the South Pole to the North Pole and back again!!
