Over 800 schools across the country take part in ‘mini Paralympic’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary school children, along with dedicated football, boccia and swimming programmes. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (2,190 in 2017) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions. If you are new to Panathlon, please take a look at the video (at the bottom of the page) to get a flavour of what we are all about.

It was great to do sports that relate to our kids. Also, this competition is all about learning about winning and losing. Too often activities we attend don’t have this.
I think it is a fantastic charity. The more people, of all abilities, that you can get involved in sport and health and fitness in a fun and engaging way can only be a good thing. And to have this event at the London Aquatics Centre is just another example of the legacy of London 2012
Panathlon is an extremely important competition. We have brought children along today who really worry about new things. Coming here gives them an opportunity to overcome their anxieties and take part in a wide range of fun activities whilst representing their borough.
As well as the multi-sport, we do the Primary Panathlon and our able-bodied children have been trained by Panathlon to run those events as Leaders, so we’ve made it a whole school thing. It’s very much part of the school.
Panathlon is always fun, but it’s not just about playing games. It’s about competing for your school against another school. The kids feel proud about that and want to do well. They love it.
I have really enjoyed it today and it’s nice to play against people from other schools. It’s the teamwork I love. It means the world to me. I really love Panathlon
There isn’t sport for all of our children at this level. We have a few students who do competitive sports with the mainstream children but, without Panathlon, there wouldn’t be a chance for the other kids to take part in competition.
This is the highlight of the year for us. Football at Wembley? It doesn’t get much better than that. Our kids love it.
We’re completely sold on Panathlon. It’s spread like a very positive wave and ripple through the whole school and the whole curriculum.
Panathlon is a really inclusive event. It’s difficult to find events that are suitable for SLD children and Panathlon is just that.
