Panathlon gives almost 22,000 young people with disabilities and special needs every year the opportunity to take part in competitive sport

 In the last year, 21,906 children and young people from 1,335 schools in England and Wales took part in ‘mini Paralympics’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary-age pupils as well as our dedicated swimming, football, boccia and ten-pin bowling programmes. With an additional 4,611 students aged 14-19 fulfilling roles as specially-trained Young Leaders at our competitions, that made a grand total of 26,517 young people engaged in our sporting programmes in a single academic year.

  • I’m shocked. I’ve never won anything before. I’m proud to do this with my mates. I am over the moon.

    Andrew Saxton, Bents Green, Sheffield
  • 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
  • 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
  • This was our first time at Panathlon and it has made our kids realise how much fun they could have and what they could learn. It has been a real eye opener for them!

    Julie Markowycz, Lowerhouses Primary
  • This is one of the best experiences of my life. My favourite is the table top cricket because you get to really smash the ball. Panathlon has lifted my confidence and skills.

    James Cole, aged 17, Barking and Dagenham
  • “The Environment is conducive so they feel comfortable, which enables them to perform at their best.”

    Ailsa Bell, Freebrough Academy
  • 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
  • One of our children said it was the first time he’d ever won anything in sport.

    Shirley Bond, PE coordinator at Stratton School, Gloucestershire
  • I’m really glad I’ve met somebody with the same condition as me. We’ve both got spina bifida, so I can relate to him and I’m really glad that we had a chat. He’s a big inspiration, so I think I might take up racing!

    Zahra Naqvi, aged 13, Milton Keynes, Bucks, on meeting Panathlon patron Richard Chiassaro
  • Primary Panathlon works really well. The activities are pitched perfectly for younger children.

    Penny Warner, Head of PE at Amwell View School, Hertfordshire
