PE & School Sports Partnership

School Games

The School Games consists of four unique types of competition:

  • Intra-School Competition
  • Local Inter-School Competition
  • County Final
  • School Games National Finals

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

A network of School Games Organisers (SGOs) and Local Organising Committees (LOCs) have worked alongside the Youth Sport Trust in delivering three distinct levels of competition since the Games’ inception in 2010 – ranging from intra – inter school activity, in addition to the National Finals, which is supported by National Governing Bodies.

SGOs are funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and the National Lottery through Sport England to deliver the School Games programme for three days a week. They are predominantly hosted by schools to whom the funding is paid. Outside of this, many SGOs also work as teachers, within School Sport Partnerships or in other roles in sport and schools.

This network currently services in excess of 17,500 registered schools who compete across School Games’ competitions.

Both SGO’s for the Rotherham borough are part of the WPT PE & School Sports Partnership. For more information contact rotherhamcompetitions@gmail.com
