School Games:

The School Games is an exciting, free to enter, multi level competition for school children in England.

The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.

The competition is made up of four stages - intra school, inter school, county festivals and national finals - and is made up of a host of different sports. Such as:

  • Trampolining

  • Badminton

  • Athletics

  • Cricket

Nationally and locally the School Games is being delivered through partnerships with more than £128m of Lottery and Government funding being invested to support the School Games. At a local level the School Games will be delivered by schools, School Games Organisers, Tyne & Wear Sport and other local partners. 

The Tyne & Wear PE & School Sport Alliance is chaired by the Head Teacher of Cullercoats Primary School, and is responsible for overseeing the management and delivery of county festivals. More information about the Tyne & Wear PE & School Sport Alliance can be found here.
