Alton School

Athletics

The teaching of athletics begins at the end of the spring term and runs through the whole of the summer term to enable us to get through all the running, throwing and jumping events.

Throughout the term the pupils have the opportunity to take part in friendly athletic competitions against local schools building up to the Junior and Senior District Athletic Competitions in Reading and Aldershot. For the best athletes they have the opportunity to compete for the District Team.

We also enter the ISA Regional athletics competition which takes place at Eton, once again the best athletes will qualify for the National event in Birmingham. We regularly have many Regional and National winners.
