Competitions

What is the School Games?

The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5 young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. The School Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools and at county and national level.

Level 1 (Intra-school)

For many young people sporting competition is first experienced through intra-house teams, form group competitions and or in PE lessons. This level of competition will build on a school's existing work to offer pupils a year-round programme of regular intra-school competition in a number of sports that culminate in a School Games Day.

WaSSP sees this as an ideal opportunity to get school staff and School Sport Organising  Crews or Committees involved in the running of small competitive sports opportunities. Help in organising this activity is available to every school who is registered on the School Games website at www.yourschoolgames.com 

Level 2 (Inter-school)

Inter-school competition is for Years 3 to 13. At this stage individuals and teams will be selected to represent their school at inter-school competitions, many of which should be leagues. Schools will have the flexibility to decide which sports to enter but are encouraged to involve as many pupils as possible by creating breadth in the sports they offer and depth through the creation of additional teams.

Within the Warrington area Level 2 inter-school competitions are held throughout the academic year with exit routes into the county wide Level 3 School Games events. These competitions are available to book onto through this website. Further competitive activities run by National Governing Body of Sport partners and local professional sports clubs are included in our competitions schedule. Exit routes from these competitions may not lead into the County Level 3 events, but may lead onto national heats and finals and have also links into the local clubs so that children can continue playing sport outside the school environment.

Level 3 (School Games Festival)

Each county will host a mulit-sport showcase event as a culmination of the year-round inter-school competition. Teams and individuals competing at inter-school level will win the opportunity to compete in this event. Pupils succeeding at this level will be encouraged to develop their enjoyment and talent in sport through existing National Governing Body of Sport clubs and talent pathways.

The School Games Festival is normally planned and managed through a Local Organising Committee and is chaired by a Head Teacher and supported by the County Sports Partnership.

Level 4 (National Finals)

This is a national multi-sport event, in which the country's most talented athletes of school/college age compete if selected by a National Governing Body of Sport. This event will take place in high quality venues amongst a unique and vibrant atmoshere and supports athletes development; acting as a stepping stone to further national and international competition.
