All pupils are encouraged to participate in the athletics programme, whether they have previous experience or not. Throughout the summer term, athletics is delivered at St Mary’s University, where we have access to their exceptional facilities, including the Sir Mo Farah athletics track.
Both the boys’ and girls’ teams are entered for meetings and district competitions, with the opportunity to progress to county and national levels through the ISA competition structure. The athletics season culminates with our annual Sports Day, with all pupils from Year 5 to the Sixth Form participating and competing for their houses. Complementing the athletics programme is a running club, which takes place weekly throughout the winter and prepares individuals for cross-country and track distance events.
