The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The Games are made up of four levels:
Level 1: Intra-school competition - sporting competition for all students held within the school
Level 2: Inter-school competition - individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools against other local schools, with the winning team progressing to a School Games Festival
Level 3: School Games Festival - regional or countywide festivals and competitions are usually held twice a year to find the best performers in the area
Level 4: National multi-sport event - the 2015 School Games saw 1,600 of the most talented young people in the UK selected to compete.
