School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The Games are made up of three levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, and at a county/area level:
- Intra-school (Level 1) – sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition
- Inter-school (Level 2) – individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions
- School Games Festivals (Level 3) – the county/area will stage multi-sport School Games Festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition
The Games are designed to build on the magic of the 2012 Olympics & Paralympics to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.
Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin is split into 6 separate School Games areas with each area having designated School Games Organisers who co-ordinate, organise and run the level 2 competitions.
