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.

Panathlon is brilliant. I’ve been coming here since the age of nine and enjoy it every year. I take part in the wheelchair slalom and the relay races. I love racing against others.
What a fantastic event. The atmosphere throughout was one of encouragement and support. All the young people swam incredibly well and loved competing in this type of environment.
What a brilliant event, we are so pleased to have had this number of schools from across the county involved and starting them up so young into the Panathlon programme
Panathlon is important to us. We run our own festivals and various SEN clubs, but this gives us a competitive outlet; something to work towards. It’s great for the kids.
This is my second year volunteering at a Panathlon event and it is a truly inspiring organisation. the enthusiasm the children have for the event, together with the thanks they express to the people volunteering is humbling.
Panathlon offers the most even playing field. It’s the one competition that caters for students of lower ability. It’s imperative that they get the opportunity to compete for their school and their borough. I love the ethos of the event and the competition.
The thing that we like about Panathlon the most, and our staff and parents always comment on, is that Panathlon levels the playing field. That’s the key for them to be able to perform equally against their peers.
Panathlon is the best organised sports event that we go to. The children love the whole day, the experience of competing and socialising with other teams.
It has been the best day I can remember as part of the school. I can’t believe we have won!
Lillie had no confidence in the water, but today she amazed us, the activities made it so inclusive and the all the children surprised us what they could do, today gave children at Norfolk Primary a chance to shine.
