The Benefits

The School Games is a fun and enjoyable way of engaging all young people through school sport - either as a competitor, young leader, official, or as part of a media team, focusing on blogging and promoting sport.

Sport can encourage the growth of numerous qualities within young people and we encourage teachers and event organisers to celebrate success around six key values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-believe and teamwork. We call this the 'Spirit of the Games'.

#take10 Campaign

It's no secret that preparing for Summer exams is tough, particularly for 14-16 year-olds, with pressure to revise in and out of school. #take10 uses sport and physical activity to give students a 10 minute break from brain drain. It's a small ask, giving young people a reason to be active. Exercise boosts endorphins, giving young people a mental break with physical impact.

The campaign encouraging short exercise breaks for young people takes place in June 2018 so look out for the hashtag on our social media channels and consider taking part for the chance to win some great prizes.
