“Schools use competitive sport to energise the entire school culture; their leaders understand its value and continually promote it”.
“But the real value of competitive sport is the positive effect it has on education. Schools that win on the field win in the exam hall!”
Wilshaw (2014), Going the extra mile – Excellence in competitive school sport
