2019/2020 School Games
This year nearly all Primary, Secondary and Parallel county finals will take place outside of the Somerset School Games Spring and Summer Festivals. Finals will be held throughout the year at venues across Somerset. The only exceptions are primary tennis and primary quad kids - these two finals will remain as part of the summer school games festival at Millfield.
We hope that by changing the format of the finals it will enable schools to free up staff to bring new and different young people to the School Games festivals in the Spring and Summer.
We are currently working on the programme for the Spring and Summer Festivals and details will be available by December 2019.
Details of the county finals events are available now on the School Games Calendar.
