Different times, same goals

The start of this year will certainly be different, but the School Games will continue! The Games ensure that physical activity and competition are available to support young peoples’ wider development, including their ability to re-socialise and improve their physical and mental well-being.

The School Games are designed to be age appropriate and you will find a selection of activities along with a mix of competitions and challenges. Once again, pupils will be able to have fun, compete, push themselves, show grit and determination and challenge each other. All activities should be undertaken with the School Games values in mind.
