Norfolk School Games

What is the Norfolk School Games?

“Providing engaging opportunities to help all young people to achieve their personal best.”

The Norfolk School Games is the largest school sport event to ever be held in Norfolk.

The objectives of the games are to:

  • Provide safe and engaging opportunities for young people to enjoy and develop through competitive sport and physical activity.
  • Provide meaningful leadership opportunities to help young people develop and demonstrate positive behaviours and character.
  • Ensure a diverse School Games offer to make the Games appealing and relevant to a breadth of young people.
  • Promote and encourage progression into community sport and physical activity to help to continue their development and embed an active lifestyle.

The Games is part of the national School Games initiative which aims to inspire more young people to take part in competitive school sport. The Norfolk School Games is organised by Active Norfolk and the eight School Sport Partnerships in the county and sponsored by the University of East Anglia Sportspark

The Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, at county/area level and a national finals event:

Level 1 – sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition

Level 2 – individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools against other local schools in School Games qualifying competitions run by the eight School Sport Partnerships (SSPs). The winning individuals and teams are selected to represent their SSP at Level 3.

Level 3 – the Norfolk School Games Finals are two week long multi-sport competitions (Winter and Summer) where pupils from across the county represent their SSP whilst competing against each other. At the end of the week the most successful SSP is crowned over all champions.

Level 4 – the School Games finals: a national multi-sport event where the most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete in the countries sporting venues.
