Pen Campau



Nic Parry


Sports Media Services for S4C, 29 October 2007 to 2010 (88 episodes in 3 series)


A early evening knockout tournament involving Welsh-speaking schools from across the country as they are tested on their sporting knowledge.

Not much to be said about it but the questions asked in the show were of a considerably taxing standard for a children's show.


The title roughly translates as Top Achievement.

The series usually began with preview programmes ranging from catch-ups with the previous year's winners, sports personalities visiting their old schools and preliminary exams to find pupils for the show.

A set of three specials featuring sporting personalities representing their old schools airs inbetween Round 1 and 2 of each series.

The third and final series was cut from 31 programmes to fourteen (likewise, the number of teams was cut from 32 to 16).


2007/8: Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen, Caernarfon
2008/9: Ysgol Gyfun Bro Morgannwg, Barry
2009/10: Ysgol Glan-y-Mor, Pwllheli
