Our Athletics programme is wide-ranging and is delivered during the Summer Term. All children from Pre-Prep upwards take part in age-appropriate athletics training. Birchfield’s extensive grounds allow us to keep a dedicated 400 metre track and permanent long jump facilities.
Our key athletics disciplines include both track and field events such as 100 metres, 100 metre hurdles, 400 metres, 4 x 100 metre relay, long jump, shotput and javelin. Pupils compete in our hugely popular Sports Day in the Summer Term in which they seek to gain points for their House. Indeed, many pupils seek to beat their personal bests and win coveted individual awards.
