The School Games

A key area of our work is to co-ordinate competitive school sport locally. The School Games is the Government's structure for competitive school sport and a key strategy for creating a meaningful sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It involves all young people in Years 3 to 13, with a range of opportunities to ensure the inclusion of young people with all abilities and backgrounds through:

  • Intra-School Competition within a school environment, house teams or form groups competing in varied and regular competition throughout the year.
  • Inter-School Competition regular leagues taking place between schools at a local level throughout the year, with the best school teams qualifying to take part at the county level School Games Festival.
  • National Event a major multi-sport event for the most talented young people of school age. The event provides a showcase for our best sporting talent.
