The Birmingham School Games is a city-wide celebration of school sport and physical activity – keeping competitive sport at the heart of schools and providing more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best. Primarily, it involves intra and inter-school sports events that are delivered by Sport Birmingham and the 11 School Games Organisers. There are festivals in over 25 sports, including many sports included in Birmingham 2022, which are fully inclusive and include a large number of para events for SEND pupils.
During last academic year, there were over 750 inter-school events delivered which attracted over 100,000 participations from pupils across primary, secondary and special schools. Our aim is to increase the number of schools involved in the School Games and thus extend our reach to even more young people in the city. School Games events are also a great opportunity for many young people to develop leadership skills through volunteering.
