Make sure your School has the chance to qualify for the next Championships, by contacting your School Games Organiser (SGO)!


Summer arrives just in time for the School Games Summer Championships

The summer sun and blue skies were the perfect backdrop for this year's Leicester-Shire & Rutland School Games Summer Championships, which took place at Uppingham School Sports Centre on Friday 28th June. Over 1,000 primary aged athletes from 65 schools across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland competed in the glorious weather.

The Championships started with the Opening Ceremony and featured an outstanding dance routine to the Greatest Showman soundtrack performed by Sketchley Hill Primary School.

Compere BBC Radio Leicester's Ian Stringer and special guest Ben Higgins, 400m hurdler from Rutland and GO GOLD Ambassador introduced the mascot race between 'Charlie Fox' from Leicestershire County Cricket Club, 'Zoom' from the Daily Boost programme, 'Dazzle' the School Games mascot and 'Spike' the alien from Learning South Leicestershire School Sports Partnership. It was a close race with 'Zoom' soaring through to the finish line just in time.

An awe-inspiring freestyle football routine from world record holder Dan Magness, bursting with crowd pleasing stunts and tricks concluded the Opening Ceremony.

The sun continued to shine as athletes set off for a competitive day of action in Quadkids Athletics, Kwik Cricket, Quicksticks Hockey, Netball, Sportsability, Swimming, Tri-Golf and the Change 4 Life Festival.

The atmosphere across the disciplines was buzzing as athletes cheered on their team mates as they competed.

As results from the individual competitions began to filter in, the athletes gathered once again for the Closing Ceremony with BBC Radio Leicester's Ian Stringer and were joined by Ben Higgins, 400m hurdler from Rutland and GO GOLD Ambassador and world record holding free style footballer Dan Magness.

Results for each discipline were announced and trophies presented to the Champions and Spirit of the Games winners of each competition, and medals given out to Gold, Silver and Bronze medallist teams.

Liam Drake, Sports Development Officer at Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport reflected on the day:

"The day was a fantastic celebration of school sport competition and participation. Whilst winning is a great feeling, we also saw some fantastic examples of the School Games values and the lifelong skills that sport can provide such as teamwork, resilience, respect, friendship and a positive attitude towards a healthy and active lifestyle."

Ben Higgins highlighted how important the School Games Summer Championships are for young athletes:

"It's been a great atmosphere, there's a load of parents, teachers and everyone's getting involved. It's a great opportunity for the kids to go out and express themselves in sport."

The Leicester-Shire & Rutland School Games, now in its eighth year, is part of the national 'School Games Programme'. It aims to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.


Athletes shine at inaugural School Games SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disability) Championships

Over 300 of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland's most talented young disabled athletes competed at the inaugural Leicester-Shire & Rutland School Games SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Championships on Friday 22nd March at Loughborough University.

The Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport School Games SEND Championships is a new addition to the LRS Schools' County Finals 2019 Calendar. It's a multi-sport inclusive event, tailored specifically to be appropriate to Moderate Learning Disabilities (MLD) and Severe Learning Disabilities (SLD) students from special and mainstream schools across the network.

As a culmination of local qualifying competitions, the Schools represented the 10 School Sport & Physical Activity Networks (SSPANs). The event ensured that disability sport provision is formalised and accessible across all of our ten SSPANs through the great work of our School Games Organisers.

The Championships provided an exciting and inspiring atmosphere for the young disabled athletes and allowed them to enjoy and excel within sport, as the athletes competed in:

  • Boccia
  • New Age Kurling
  • Sitting Volleyball & Wheelchair Basketball
  • Motor Activity Training Programme

The athletes gathered for the Opening Ceremony, compered by Gaynor Nash and with special guests Wheelchair Racers Hannah Cockroft MBE, 5x Paralympic Champion, 10x World Champion & T34 World record holder and Nathan Maguire, European Gold Medalist and 3 time Bronze Medalist and Hollie Arnold MBE, F46 Javelin Thrower, Paralympic Champion, Gold Medalist, Triple World Champion and Record Holder. Ashmount School performed a very moving dance display, from a recent performance at the Curve Theatre in Leicester.

After the Opening Ceremony, teams headed off for 3 hours of competitive action, in their respective sport and competition. After the action was complete, an Awards Ceremony took place at each of the competitions sites, as the full results were read out and the Winners, 2nd place, 3rd place and Spirit of the Games' winners were announced and presented with their medals and trophies! The Spirit of the Games Award was given to the team who best represented the School Games values of Determination, Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-Belief and Teamwork.

School Games action doesn't stop there for Loughborough. The University will again host the School Games Summer Championships on Friday 28th June 2019 at Uppingham School Sports Centre.

The Leicester-Shire & Rutland School Games, now in its eighth year, is part of the national 'School Games Programme'. It aims to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

Sports Development Officer, Matty Crackell from Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, said:
