Athletics

Athletics runs parallel to cricket for both boys and girls in the Prep School during the summer term. The pupils learn the basic techniques and training principles of Athletics in their PE lessons, then, use their skills in matches against other schools and in regional and national competitions. 

During the summer term there are also inter-house Athletics competitions and our Prep School Sport’s Day, which is one of main summer events that parents can attend for support.

Our Athletics facilities are excellent with a full size, eight lane, 400m running track, first rate long jumps and space for all other field events. The coaches are skilled in both track and field disciplines and are adept at spotting and nurturing individual talents as well as developing a supportive and capable team.
