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.

  • 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
  • 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.

    Judy Wells, teaching assistant, Fairfax School.
  • Our strong team culture has impacted into school – behaviour has improved, relationships developed, a sense of achieving can be found in all areas of the school.

    Lucas Neocleous, football coach, Haringey
  • 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
  • Never have we been to an event before that was aimed perfectly at the ability of our children.

    Penny Warner, Head of PE at Amwell View School, Hertfordshire
  • A lot of kids don’t get the opportunity to represent their county even in a mainstream school, let alone a special school. For some of these kids, this could be the peak of where they get to in sport, so what a great event. They are overwhelmed and think it’s absolutely incredible. That’s what it’s all about.

    Kevin Hughes, Assistant Head of PE at Arbour Vale School, Slough
  • We’re a mainstream school so these kids would normally get very little opportunity to play for their school teams, so Panathlon is great for their self-esteem and confidence.

    Annie Sturgeon, teacher at Highworth Combined School, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
  • Panathlon is mega for our school. It’s very important that everyone gets the chance to play sport. It’s all about equal opportunities isn’t it? It’s great for the kids to show what they are able to do.

    Cally Knight, special needs support assistant at Hounslow Heath School, Hounslow
  • Some competitions we go to are looking at some of the more elite students, but at Panathlon everyone has the opportunity to experience that competitive edge against their peers.

    Kevin Hughes, Assistant Head of PE at Arbour Vale School, Slough
  • The Panathlon Challenge is unique and I hope that many more young people have the opportunity to take part in the future.

    HRH Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward
