School Games

What is School Games? 

The School Games consists of four unique types of competition. 

  1. Intra-school competition (Level 1)
  2. Local inter-school competition. (Level 2)
  3. County final (Level 3)
  4. School Games national finals. 

What is an intra-school competition? 

An intra-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between pupils who attend the same school. For example, our students take part in class School Games activities each term and  an annual Sports Day which celebrates their sporting success. 

What is a local inter-school competition? 

A local inter-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between school from the same area. 

What is a county final? 

A county final is a showcase event held by Lancashire School Games. 

Last year we competed in the following events, as always the students demonstrated the School Games values and did us proud representing the school! 

  • Football
  • Swimming Gala
  • School Games Day at Blackpool
  • New Age Kurling
  • Boccia 
  • Teeball

School Games


There are six school games values;

  1. Honesty
  2. Respect
  3. Self-Belief 
  4. Teamwork
  5. Passion
  6. Determination

The six School Games Values were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be shown and embodied within schools, and to reflect the 'spirit' of the School Games.

With the support from West Lancashire Sports Partnership, we encourage all our students, parents, leaders, team managers and spectators to adopt and demonstrate the 'Spirit of the Games'  at all events. We have linked the six School Games values closely with our school ethos.
