Athletics

Opportunities for every pupil to get involved

Every child in the school participates in Athletics during the summer term. During the winter we operate track club sessions at Millfield and indoor training sessions for the field events. Teams from all age groups compete in Inter-House and Inter-School fixtures against local state and preparatory schools, giving all children the opportunity to compete. For older children, athletics competitions extend to county, regional and national events, in which Millfield pupils are highly successful.

Outstanding achievements

On average each year, 25 athletes are selected as individuals to represent the South-West in the National Preparatory Schools' Championships. Our teams regularly reach the final of the English Schools Cup which is open to both state and independent schools. We have a large number of qualified athletics staff who help on the coaching side.

Superb facilities

The facilities on site include: a grass running track, 3 lane hurdle track, long jump pit and throws, whilst at Millfield School there is an all weather 400 metre track with full facilitation for all events to which we have access.
