JMA in Top 20 Sporting State Schools of 2017!
We are delighted to announce that JMA was ranked in the top 20 sporting state schools in the country. We moved from 83rd place in 2016 to 18th in 2017; a fantastic achievement. An indication of just how difficult it is to reach the list can be seen when you realise that reaching the top 30 means you are in the top 1% of sporting schools in the country while the top 100 represents the top 3%.
The top sporting state schools of the year reflects competitive achievement in a range of sports throughout 2017 and honours those schools that take competitive sport especially seriously.
Based on 20 different sports and more than 120 different national competitions, more weighting is given to success in a range of sports rather than single sports – not to mention competitions with more teams competing - and all results are inputted into a special computer programme.
We are so proud that one of JMAs specialisms has been recognised for the amazing work of our sports students and staff.
