Athletics at RGS has grown from strength to strength over recent years producing athletes who are now competing on the national stage.
Specialist coaching and a twice weekly club to develop skills are enjoyed by many pupils.
All pupils at RGS have the chance to take part in Athletics. We compete in weekly fixtures during the Trinity Term and host schools at our own Athletics track at St. Oswald’s playing field as well as taking advantage of the tartan track at Nunnery Wood Sports Centre for our bigger home fixtures.
Each year we enter the English Schools Athletics Association Track and Field Cup in the Junior and Intermediate age groups. Each year group competes in their own City Championships, which can lead to selection for the Herefordshire and Worcestershire team. From Year Nine to the Upper Sixth, RGS pupils are often selected for the County team and beyond, with some going on to represent RGS at the National Finals.
Each year, Sports Day is held at St. Oswald’s playing field and all pupils attend, wearing their House colours and competing enthusiastically in the last House event of the year. Sports Day is a great occasion and we welcome family and friends to share this event with us.
