School Games

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

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 competitions
School games festivals (Level 3): the county/area will stage multi-sport school games festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition.
