Athletics

Athletics at St Martin's Ampleforth is taught to all children from Year 3.  Our teaching aims to help each pupil enjoy all aspects of athletics and to reach his or her potential.

Whilst athletics training is mainly taken as a summer sport, running and general fitness training takes place all year round.

Pupils receive expert instruction in discuss, javelin, long jump, high jump, sprinting, hurdling and distance running,

There are many opportunities during the summer term to compete in athletics meets at other schools.  We take part, each year, in the National Prep Schools Athletics Competition.
