See a short clip below of the Greater Manchester Winter School Games 2018.
The School Games is a key Government priority for realising a meaningful sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
It is supported by three Government Departments – Department for Education, Department of Culture, Media and Sport and the Department of Health – with funding from Sport England, through the National Lottery.
The School Games aims to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools, providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.
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.
The Greater Manchester School Games aims to further revive the culture of competitive sport in schools. This exciting concept harness' the power of the Olympics and Paralympics and is designed to motivate and enthuse more young people than ever before to participate in high quality, meaningful competition within and across schools, supporting them in achieving their own personal best in sport and in life.
Competition's run across three distinct, but integrated levels (see below) providing a simple and progressive pathway that will allow young people from across the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester to compete in local level intra and inter school competition, culminating in a multi sport festival (level 3) that will showcase the very best of competitive sport across the County.
As part of the Winter and Summer School Games we offer the opportunity for young people to perform at the opening ceremony through GM Talent. Applications for the Summer Games opening ceremony are now open.
