21st April Update
We have now made the difficult decision to cancel all County School Games competitions for the foreseeable future, this includes our U13 Handball on 23rd April, Year 5/6 Dodgeball on 19th May and the Summer Primary School Games and Summer Secondary Schools Games on 24th and 25th June. This decision has been made due to the continued uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and with the best interests of our young people, deliverers and all those involved with the Greater Manchester School Games at its core.
