Information for students

Sport in the UK has never been more exciting and you can be a part of it!

The School Games is your chance to get involved. Whether it is participating in the different sports, leading others, volunteering or adding to the atmosphere at matches played at your school, there is something for everyone.

Ask yourself:

  • What sports are played at your school?
  • How does your school celebrate or report on matches?
  • Have you always wanted to play in a team but never been selected?
  • Have you ever had an opinion on a referee and thought you could do better but never had a chance?

With the School Games your school can choose from over 30 different sports to run inter-form, inter-house or even inter-school matches and what’s more there will be loads of opportunities to put your own stamp on how they are run.

In partnership with your teachers the School Games can be a great way of bringing different areas of the school together. Whether its the school band playing at the start of games, or developing a team of reporters to record the match highlights and interview players or even creating a sports information team to capture statistics, whatever your interest the School Games could be the platform to showcase your talent.

For more information about these opportunities speak to a member of the PE facilty at your school and ask them about the School Games. If you'd like to speak to us, you can contact us via any of our social media channels.
