Successful Term of Athletics for KS2

We have welcomed over 60 athletes from across KS2 to our open Athletics Club this term. Girls have thrown, jumped, sprinted and paced their way to victory. Our all-inclusive QuadKids trials at the start of the term allowed every girl in KS2 to experience a four-event ‘Quad’ Athletics competition, measuring times and distances to work on during both Club and lesson time.

Our selected squad teams met Tormead for a friendly match and achieved wins across the age groups with successes in the 50m and 75m races. We then welcomed six schools to our Invitational Athletics meet at Spectrum which included St Hilary’s, Tormead and Notre Dame. As well as several gold, silver and bronze medals, GHS scored enough points to win the competition overall.

The season finished with every girl in KS2 competing for the Inter-House Athletics Cup on Sports Day. It was a joy to see girls improve on their times and distances and highlights how hard they have worked in lessons. Congratulations to Abbot House on winning the trophy.
