The games are made up of three levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools at county / area level and a national event for the most talented young people in the UK:

  • Intra-school (Level 1): sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition
  • Inter-school (Level 2): individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competition
  • School games festivals (Level 3): the county/area will stage multi-sport school games festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition
