The School Games is an exciting nationwide initiative designed to continue the magic of the London 2012 Olympics through School Sport Competition.
The School Games programme is a celebration of competitive school sport and culture by creating a year-round calendar of competition for all young people in years 3 to 13 across the city that will inspire them to get involved in competitive school sport.
It also provides opportunities to get involved, not just as participants, but also in other areas such as event organisation, officiating, volunteering and cultural activities.
The School Games initiative is made up of four levels of activity:
- Intra-school competition - sports competition for all students in each school.
- Local cluster inter-school event - coordinated by School Games Organisers across the city.
- City-wide school competitions and festivals - a city finals event for competitions or open developmental festivals for selected schools
- A National multi-sports festival - held every 2 years and delivered by Youth Sport Trust.
Sport Birmingham support the delivery of the School Games across Birmingham by working closely with the network of School Games Organisers and coordinating the city-wide competitions and festivals.
