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.

  • We’ve got children who are in powerchairs, who don’t have access to many other events, but here they’ve got a chance to compete on an even level with other children from the area.

    Carina Taylor, Head of PE at Chadsgrove School, Bromsgrove
  • Most of our students don’t get chance to take part in activities like this outside of school, so this sort of thing is invaluable.

    Sally Proctor, teacher at Heritage House, Chesham
  • You’ve got children here that don’t particularly gel very well and to walk away with the trophy as regional champions is a pretty awesome achievement. It’s a reward for teamwork.

    Jane Chave, PE teacher at Priory School, Bury, part of the Suffolk team to win the East Regional Final.
  • None of the pupils had participated in a Panathlon before, so this was a new and exciting experience for them. We are grateful for the opportunity that tailors the physical and sensory needs of our pupils.

    Jo Gavin, Teacher Cherry Oak School
  • Today allowed our children to shine in sport for the first time. Thank you for an amazing day. Long may we be involved

    Hollie Williams, teacher at Topcliffe Primary School, Birmingham
  • Panathlon is a fantastic event. It’s changed the way we do sport in school. We’ve set up after school clubs specifically for Panathlon so we train pupils up all the way through. There are other competitions, but Panathlon is definitely the best. It’s like the World Cup.

    Luke Hammatt, PE teacher at Trinity School, Barking & Dagenham
  • 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
  • “That was amazing! Out of 11 other schools, in fact out of the whole country, we are the champions! I am pretty impressed with myself. I can’t put it into words!”

    Freddie Southern, 13, Moor House
  • It has been the best day I can remember as part of the school. I can’t believe we have won!

    Emma Hull, 11, King James First Academy
  • Today was fun; I loved everything I did today. It was a great also meeting Paralympian gold medalist, Liz Johnson.
