Athletics at College has developed hugely over the last few years. With around 50 pupils now competing for the school in regular fixtures, the standard of athletes is improving every year. We pride ourselves on ensuring high quality coaching for all, mixed with an emphasis on enjoyment and a positive mental attitude.
Last season was very successful for the sport, with the highlight being two athletes qualifying for the Nationals at Birmingham. We also had a number of athletes who made it through to the Southwest regionals and county championships.
We train twice weekly at the excellent Prince of Wales Stadium, which provides a fantastic training facility. We are well staffed, with a mixture of experienced coaches in a variety of events, which includes ex-professional sportsmen as well as teachers.
The highlight of the year is the annual Inter-House Sports Day, the only sports event at College where the entire school is present. This is a superb occasion to showcase the best athletes in the school in a highly competitive environment!
