The Mount’s Fantastic 1st York Interschool Gymnastics Competition Surpasses Expectations!


The Mount School York’s inaugural Interschool Gymnastics Competition for Years 3-13 was inclusive with all levels of participation represented alongside some stand-out elite individual and team performances. A lovely, warm encouraging atmosphere, the day was a huge success.

Pupils from All Saints, Huntington and York High schools joined Mount girls to perform their routines in front of a team of judges, including Ruth from both York St John University and York City Gymnastics Foundation.

Expert Ruth – who has a background in teaching PE and Gymnastics at degree level – addressed the gathered pupils:

“I was honoured to be invited to The Mount to judge this new competition. Miss Newman and The Mount team have set up such a welcoming day of gymnastics for all levels to enjoy. Your first competition can feel scary but I was pleased to see so many smiles on faces. I applaud you all. ”

Fiona Newman, Mount PE Teacher, with expertise in gymnastics, said:

“I have loved setting up and organising this exciting competition which celebrates all things gymnastic! The standard was incredible but more importantly all levels from novice to intermediate to elite were represented and rewarded with medals and certificates on the podium. This is the first of many annual competitions and we hope to get more interest from further local schools next year. Thank you so much and congratulations to all who took part and gave up their time.”

The Junior competition saw The Mount Years 3-6 compete against each other after a local junior school sadly had to drop out.

The Senior Year 7+ part of the competition saw three local schools and The Mount enter both individual and team categories.
