Record times or performances could be measured only in the sports of athletics, cycling and swimming, as performance was measured in different ways in the other sports that made up the UK School Games (which had expanded to 12 sports by 2011 from the original five in 2007). Records set included:

one world record two junior world records five junior national records.
