Athletics is a summer games option for Removes and above, and a possible option for Shells.
We have an excellent 400m running track and the facilities to participate in all track and most field events. We compete regularly throughout the summer term in a mix of both inter-school fixtures and local athletics meetings. There is particular emphasis on boys developing in their preferred events, but also trying a range of different events throughout the season. Training sessions consist of a mix of dedicated event training and general fitness, and are also coordinated so that boys peak for our major competitions. Dates of such competitions can be found in the calendar.
Athletics Sports Pathway
- Most of the training takes place in the Summer Term, but there are S&C sessions and specialist training available during the first two terms.
- Those specialising in endurance events often do cross-country during the other terms.
- In the Summer Term athletics is available for Removes to 6.2, with training on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Matches take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and at the end of term there is Inter-Social Athletics and the Inter-Social Relays.
