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.

  • Prior to being involved in Panathlon, all we could do was what we did on site at school with our own kids. We weren’t involved in competition with other schools, so this is fantastic.

    Caroline Wells, Director of Doucecroft School Services, Colchester
  • This is the highlight of the year for us. Football at Wembley? It doesn’t get much better than that. Our kids love it.

    Chris Chapman, PE teacher at Cricket Green School, Merton
  • Panathlon is proving so popular that even able-bodied children are wanting to get involved now!

    Lorraine Veck, Disability Sports Co-ordinator at Coteford Junior School, Hillingdon
  • I’m so excited to be going to the Copper Box. It’s a big honour. When I get older I want to be in the Paralympics and it feels like I’m one step closer to that dream.

    Rebecca Cavanagh, aged 15, Barking & Dagenham
  • In terms of offer for disabled children, Panathlon is the strongest example of how to run an event that is exciting, enjoyable and challenging but brings wide benefits as well as the activity. It’s a model that’s needed throughout the country, there’s no doubt.

    Barry Horne, Chief Executive of the English Federation of Disability Sport
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Panathlon is unique in bringing everyone together; people with learning difficulties or physical disabilities – they all get to take part, which is great. It’s a level playing field and everyone has a chance of competing.

    Dan O’Brien, teacher at Woodfield School, Brent
  • Our children aren’t involved in deaf activities other than through Panathlon. This competition means that all of our children can join in with something and everyone’s had a chance.

    Marianne Haylett, teacher for the deaf at Kingsbury Green School, Brent
  • Panathlon is very important to us at Swiss Cottage School. They feel like stars when they are taking part and the school is really proud of them. It gives them a lot of confidence and they start to believe in themselves. I think it’s a great experience for them.

    Anna Kwasniak, teacher at Swiss Cottage School, Camden
