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 of 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, culminating in a School Games Day.
- 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. This inter-school competition will be driven by the new School Games Organiser.
- National Event: a major multi-sport event for the most talented young people of school age. The event will provide a showcase for our best sporting talent.
