School children
We want to use the power of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire children and young people across the UK and around the world.

In this section you can find out more about programmes, initiatives and opportunities that have been created especially for children and young people.

We want all of these opportunities to spark their imagination and enthusiasm for learning, helping them to realise their potential and engage with other young people right across the globe.

Who is this for?

Schools - using the Games in the classroom and wider school activities, helping to make learning more relevant, interesting and fun.

Colleges and universities - there will be special programmes to involve students. Some institutions might provide additional services to support the Games.

Communities and other learning providers - in the UK and around the world will be a part of it.
