School Games

The Sainsbury’s School Games is an exciting four level (intra-school, inter school, county festivals and national finals) competition for school children in England.  The Sainsbury’s School Games are designed to build on the magic of London 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.
