Rettie Newcastle sponsors the Newcastle Schools 500


Rettie & Co.’s Newcastle office is continuing its sponsorship of local, community-based events with the Newcastle Schools 500. As an event that celebrates the Newcastle Schools Olympic legacy and involves students from across Newcastle, our Newcastle team is delighted to be promoting teamwork, healthy competition, community engagement, and exercise.

This year marks the eight Schools 500 held at Benfield School and hosted by the Newcastle PE and School Sport Service. From 26 June to 28 June, over forty primary, first, and middle schools from across Newcastle will be represented and taking part in a range of sports from badminton to football to cycling.

Event organiser, Katherine Tyler, from the Newcastle PE and School Sport Service said, “we all love this event. It takes a lot of preparation and support from the schools, but the smiles on the children’s faces, win or lose, makes it one of the highlights of our sporting calendar in Newcastle for first, primary, and middle schools.”

Rob Taylor, Managing Partner of Rettie Newcastle said, “We are delighted to have joined forces again with Newcastle PE & School Sports Service in sponsoring the School Sports 500. This is a great event over three days that involves so many primary school children from across the city. It gets them outside and enjoying different sports with their classmates. We at Rettie Newcastle are always keen to be part of such worthwhile events that are at the heart of our community.”
