Athletics

Athletics is a sport in which every child participates during the Summer Term.

Each pupil is encouraged to develop their running, jumping and throwing ability. Improvements are identified using the British Athletics Awards scheme, which recognises and rewards personal development in athletics.

All children represent their house at Sports Day, where they have the opportunity to utilise the skills that they have developed, for the honour of their house.

Some pupils represent  the School at a number of athletics events throughout the Summer Term including the National Preparatory Championships for which we hold the regional qualifiers; Mount Kelly Trophies.

Cross-country training takes place throughout the year. We are very lucky to have the most beautiful grounds comprising of over 50 acres. 

The children develop stamina, teamwork, goals, achievement and a positive attitude towards general fitness.
