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.

Find out what has been going on at the Panathlon Challenge.
Staff from the Woodland Group enjoyed an early taste of Christmas cheer as they helped make the Essex Primary...
Panathlon threw a Harry Potter-themed Christmas party in Doncaster to say a huge thank you to the deaf pupils...
Over the last week Panathlon has delivered four swimming competitions in the North, South, East and West of London....
Panathlon builds up these students’ confidence. They can see that they can achieve well, they meet other people and they make friends, so it’s very good for their confidence and independence.
Panathlon helps with the kids’ independence and helps them socially, meeting other children from other schools and just giving them a bit of experience of life outside of school. Plus life is one big competition.
Panathlon is great for Scott and has made him more confident. Years ago I had to push him to get him involved. Now he loves to participate and he will make the first move
I had two boys who said they’d thought of every way of getting out of doing this, but they volunteered for every race. One swum 10 metres unaided! He didn’t – and we didn’t – know he could do it.
I’ve really enjoyed myself, taking part in all the different activities. It feels brilliant to be representing my school. When I get back, I’ll show the teachers and everyone in school my medals. They’ll be proud of me and all my family will be proud.
It’s been an amazing day and it’s an honour to be here in the Olympic swimming stadium. It’s my first time here and it’s been one of my dreams to come here. Not every kid gets the chance to do this.
My favourite things about today were the races, the medals and the freedom. I felt fresh, healthy and free in the pool. The ball race was my favourite.
I’ve had the best day ever. I can’t wait to go home and tell my mum all about it and show her my medals.
Lots of our children have never won anything in their lives. They have had a brilliant day being cheered on by other schools. We are over the moon to have won.
It’s great to be back at Panathlon which is one of my highlights of the year. I’m delighted that we’ll be competing once again at the Olympic Park in June.
