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.

Talent Inspiration Programme (TIP)

Running in parallel to the Level 4 School Games, the Talent Inspiration Programme (TIP) brings together 150 young aspiring athletes from across the country to participate in residential learning experiences. This year's event will take place between Wednesday 30 August and Friday 01 September at Loughborough University, with nominations open to 14-18 year olds from across the country.
