The School Games

Keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

The School Games is a national programme which provides four levels of sports competition for Primary and Secondary school children across a variety of different sports.

By 2020 the School Games will be continuing to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people.

The School Games will focus on ensuring it is relevant to more children and young people and their lives today allowing more of them to achieve their potential. In driving this forward the School Games will seek to:

  • engender a sense of competence;
  • promote enjoyment; and
  • avoid negative or bad experience and promote a positive one
