The four-day event delivered by children’s charity, Youth Sport Trust in partnership with National Governing Bodies of Sport thanks to funding from Sport England through the National Lottery took place at Loughborough University.
The School Games National Finals saw over 1,000 aspiring athletes compete across ten sports, four of which include disability disciplines. The event provides a competition pathway designed to prepare the next generation of Commonwealth Games champions with former alumni including Hannah Cockroft, Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Joe Fraser.
A key pathway for the next generation of UK talent, School Games National Finals alumni secured 100 medals at Birmingham 2022, which would place it third in the medal table if it were a country. The event is the pinnacle of a competition pathway which delivers over 2.5million competitive opportunities for children across schools in the country.
