Athletics is offered as a highly compeitive activity within St George's school. All years are able to compete in several Inter School competitions. This also includes the County Championships which can allow succesful performers to reach the National Schools Finals. Within school atheltics is covered through Key Stage 3 in year 7 through to year 9. A national award scheme is followed and we find that all pupils will achieve at least a bronze or above in one atheltic event. We have a strong tradition of doing well against other schools within the local community and recently had success with a pupil representing England in the shot put a year early as an under U17.
A great deal of time is given to the coaching and training of the pupils who have a particular interest in atheltics and all school competitiors are expected to train and compete at least twice a week.
Old Georgians who have represented at international level include:
M. Itoje – England U17 (2009-2010).
