About the School Games

The 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. Our vision is that by 2020 the School Games will be continuing to make a clear and meaningful difference to the lives of even more children and young people.

School Games Mark

The School Games Mark is back for 2017! This year we're attempting to reach 10,000 applications for the first time. The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver, gold, and now platinum levels. You can start your application today by clicking below!
