What is the Schools Championship?

The schools championship is a competition between the seven Southbank schools, where each school is invited to select champions for different types of event. The Championship consists of three challenges throughout the year that members of each school can compete in, in order to win points and ultimately be declared the best school in Southbank. As well as this prestigious title the winning school will also receive The Schools Championship Cup!  Each event has 1500 points up for grabs with additional prizes to be won throughout the events.
 
Every event is unique and staff and students will need to compete alongside one another in order to secure points for their school. The first event was the Gameshow Quiz in December and the second was a fundraising challenge where champions can compete to raise money for charities of their choice!
