Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 10,000 disabled young people every year

 Over 500 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 (1,590 in 2016) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions. If you are new to Panathlon, please take a look at our latest video (at the bottom of the page) to get a flavour of what we are all about.

  • Achieving at Panathlon helps the children right across the curriculum. It gives them that sense that they can achieve something on their own merit, which gives them the confidence to try in other areas of school.

    Beverly Shillingford, inclusion team leader at Langdon Academy, Newham
  • Panathlon helps beyond the sporting field. The children know they’ve got something to work for, so their behaviour improves and it motivates them in the classroom too, because they know if they do work in class they get to come and take part in events like this.

    Cherie Lashmar, PE teacher at Columbus School, Chelmsford
  • For schools to come together like this is great, you don’t get that luxury very often. Social skills are some of the most important things we try and teach them at our school so to see them interact, celebrate when they win and shake hands at the end is spot on

    Liam Welch, teacher at Billing Brook School, Northampton
  • It’s been absolutely amazing for the students to be able to access Panathlon – to come away and work as team, have a go at different events and cheer each other on. It’s really important for these kids to have that opportunity. Sport should be for everyone, so why shouldn’t they have a chance to take part?

    Jess Russell, sports coordinator at Paddock School, Wandsworth
  • We really value the Panathlon Challenge in the borough. Students from seven secondary schools make up the team. It is one of the most important events that we take part in every year. It’s a fantastic experience for all the children and year-on-year we strive to get better.

    Elaine Burgess, partnership development manager for Barking & Dagenham
  • Since we got involved in Panathlon, the kids all really want to do PE now. Their self confidence has just come on amazing. The more events we come to, the more the kids are getting used to it and the more they are enjoying it.

    Andrea Griffiths, sports co-ordinator at Doucecroft School, Colchester
  • Primary Panathlon works really well. The activities are pitched perfectly for younger children.

    Penny Warner, Head of PE at Amwell View School, Hertfordshire
  • Watching Tom Daley before was just awesome. I love Panathlon because when I get frustrated or angry, it makes me feel free just to run or swim and forget everything else.

    Melissa Fletcher, aged 16, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
  • I am inspired by the work of Panathlon and it gives me great joy to see the happiness on the young people’s faces.

    Jack Petchey CBE
  • Today was fun; I loved everything I did today. It was a great also meeting Paralympian gold medalist, Liz Johnson.
