Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 17,500 disabled young competitors every year

 Over 1,000 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. This has been extended further this year with 16+ competitions for College students. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (3,931 in 2018) 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.

  • Panathlon gives the children more freedom. At school they are restricted to their schedules, but when they come here there’s more going on. They can go around and observe other things as well as participating themselves.

    Aaron Bint, PE teacher at Queensmill School, Hammersmith & Fulham
  • This is my last Panathlon for the school, it has been a brilliant experience, coming to Panathlon events has changed me as a person, I’ve met new people, been to new places, had life experiences out of school, thank you Panathlon.

    Scott Jefferies, Student, New Oscott School
  • We’ve got lots of smiling children. It’s fantastic because it links with a lot of the class curriculum at the moment which is around the Olympics. It gives them a great sense of wider achievement. It’s been a really positive experience for them.

    Sarah Beck, Teacher at Woodland School, Harrow
  • It’s brilliant,” he said. “I’m very proud of myself and I had a good time with my team – we won the West Midlands final! I look forward to showing off the medals to the headteacher and everyone at school.

    Harris Abdullah – Hall Green School
  • It is the first time our kids have been able to compete at a sporting event; in the past they have only had the opportunity to watch.

    Rachel Attewell, teacher at Ockenden Academy, Essex
  • We’ve been to a few events in the past and she is usually the only student in a powerchair, so to come here today where she can compete against other students on a fair playing field is fantastic.

    Caroline Rose, mother of Ella, a Year Four student from Barnet
  • This is a wonderful day, encouraging a great deal of social interaction. This is such an important aspect of the language resource of learning. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making Panathlon competitions happen.

    Karen Pincott, Inclusion Manager at Mead Primary School, Havering
  • We’re completely sold on Panathlon. It’s spread like a very positive wave and ripple through the whole school and the whole curriculum.

    Guy Wilkins, teacher at Marjorie McClure Special School, Chilslehurst, Bromley
  • 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.

    Alex Smyth, aged 14, Colchester
  • “For them to be competing in the same venue where world-class athletes have performed just swells their pride. Their excitement levels have been through the roof!”

    Teacher of the Deaf, Jo Hughes.
