What is the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough School Games?

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 Cambridgeshire & Peterborough School Games is organised Living Sport and the five School Games Organisers in the county.


New for 2020/21, we are in partnership with Decathlon Cambridge!

The Games are made up of four components:

Personal Best Challenge - A personal best challenge is a sporting activity in which individuals challenge themselves. This can be in the form of beating their best number, time, distance etc.

Intra-School Challenge - An intra-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between pupils who attend the same school. For example, this can be in the form of a class vs. class or house activity. These competitions should culminate in an annual School Games Day, or Sports Day, to celebrate a school's sporting success.

Inter-School Challenge - A local inter-school competition is a sporting activity taking place between schools from the same area - either as a one-off fixture or as part of a league. These competitions may act as qualifiers for county finals or can be run as developmental competitions or festival events to meet the needs of a local area.

County Finals Competition - A county final is a showcase event held either as the culmination of a series of local inter-school competitions or as open entry events, with invitations made by the Local Organising Committee (LOC).
