Hundreds of schools turn in a series of remarkable sporting results month after month – but who are the country’s best of the best?

 

School Sport Magazine's exclusive top sports schools of the year list reflects competitive achievement in a range of sports throughout the year and honours those schools that take competition especially seriously.

 

Based on up to 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 as well as competitions with more teams competing - with all results inputted into a special computer programme.

 

After seven years of splitting state and independent school into two separate top 100 lists between 2013 and 2019, we have now amalgamated the list into one top 200 chart starting in 2020.

 

Reaching the top 30 puts you in the top 1% in the country while making the top 100 puts you in the top 3% and making the top 200 puts you into the top 5%.

 

Schools usually have to reach the later stages of at least two or three national competitions to make the list.

 

Each year's leading schools will be revealed in the January edition of School Sport Magazine and online here at a later date. Please note there will be no list published for 2021 due the majority of national competitions being cancelled due to Covid. Qualifying competitions for the 2022 list will commence in September 2021.
