Recognition from London 2012 and our allocation of free tickets

Published: 2011-12-09 10:27:00 | Category: Headteacher

I am delighted to inform you that Carre’s Grammar School has successfully been accepted as a member of London 2012’s UK-wide reward and recognition scheme, the Get Set network, and we are now eligible for a number of exciting rewards from London 2012, including free tickets to the Games.

Get Set ( is the official London 2012 education programme, and through this programme, our students have been learning about the Games and the Olympic and Paralympic Values.

Through the programme, we have been doing work linked to London 2012 and the Olympic and Paralympic Valuessuch as the creation of the Olympic Ring model which was developed by young ambassadors and celebrated the ‘500 days to go’ milestone. We are also hosting a Sports Hall Athletics event for 200 days and a primary school football festival for 100 days.

We have now been recognised by the London 2012 Organising Committee as a school that is demonstrating its commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Values, and have become a member of the Get Set network.

This means that we are now guaranteed free tickets to London 2012.

Over the coming months, we at Carre’s Grammar School will be getting ready for London 2012 by linking more work to the Games and ensuring that our students feel that they are a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.

We look forward to updating you on this exciting work.

Best wishes
