Local Qualifying Competitions

For each sport local qualifying competitions are held within each of the eight School Sport Partnerships (SSPs) in the county. Schools within each SSP compete against other local schools to give as many of their pupils the chance to take part in competitive school sport as possible. The winning pupils/teams within each competition are invited to represent the SSP in the county finals.

For information about local qualifying competitions please visit your local SSP’s website.

High School Festivals

NEW for 2016/17 – We have also introduced some exciting new festivals which are targeted at engaging specific groups of pupils in high schools who wouldnt traditionally take part in school sport. These groups include;

  • Less active pupils
  • Pupils with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND)
  • Disengaged Girls

Each SSP will run a programme of festivals which will provide opportunities for pupils in the target groups to engage in school sport. Visit your local SSP’s website for further information.
