School Games

The School Games is a government-led programme, funded by Sport England and the National Lottery and is designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.

Since 2012, we have been running School Games events to help inspire young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of activity and competition. These events offer a variety of opportunities that seek to motivate and inspire all young people across our country to take part in sport and physical activity. Every year we run both a Herefordshire and Worcestershire Summer School Games Festival, bringing together around 120 schools and 3500 students on event day, along with smaller events throughout the year.

In addition to engaging pupils from across the two counties, local dignitaries and VIPs are also invited to share the School Games experience alongside the young people. Each School Games has a Sporting Champion attending, who shares their inspirational stories with the participants and young leaders involved in the day. We have often welcomed Olympic & Paralympic medallists, including Laura Deas (Pyeongchang 2018 bronze medallist) and Sascha Kindred CBE (7x Paralympic Champion).
