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 and 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.

There are opportunities to represent the school in Year 7 and 8 in the West Devon Championships, as well as at the Mount Kelly Trophy, a high level event against other Prep Schools within South West England that can lead to selection for the National Independent Schools Championships.

Cross-country training also takes place throughout the year and helps pupils develop stamina, teamwork, goals, achievement and a positive attitude towards general fitness.
