Chippenham Games

Tuesday 21st June & Wednesday 22nd June

The Chippenham Games is a two day Olympic legacy event.  It is now the largest event in the Chippenham Schools sporting calendar involving over 500 Year 6 pupils, at least ten local sports coaches and more than 30 Young Leaders from all three secondary Schools.

Its a wonderful sporting celebration and gives all the children a chance to meet who they will be going to secondary school with , they may even meet children that will be there tutor group at secondary school! The Chippenham Games is also supported by the three local Secondary Head teachers Mr Nick Norgrove (Abbeyfield), Mrs Lisa Percy (Hardenhuish), and Mr Neil Spurdell (Sheldon), who give the children a rousing welcome on both days and some words of wisdom to remind them of the Olympic values . The event is an important part of the transition process for all pupils involved as teams are based on which School they are moving in to.  Young Leaders from the secondary schools do a brilliant job leading teams, supporting and encouraging the children throughout the day.   The Games are always officially opened by a Sporting Hero and is actioned packed full of fun!
