The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire young people across the country to take part in more school sports events and festivals.

The games are made up of three levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools and at county level.

  • 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
