Philips High School WON this year’s Greater Manchester Schools Climbing Competition!
This is a fantastic achievement with approximately 250 pupils taking part.
It is wonderful to see 6 really enthusiastic kids taking part in a sport that has grown so rapidly over the last few years. 40% of all climbers are under 20 years old!
Climbing walls are now present in more than 140 countries around the world with more than 35 million climbers practising the sport and climbing will feature in the 2020 Olympics for the first time next year!
