As part of the broad and varied curriculum, both boys and girls benefit from the experience of qualified athletics coaches and participate in cross country running in the spring and autumn.

Our beautiful surroundings provide both challenging terrain and the perfect backdrop for long distance running. Come rain or shine, pupils are encouraged to build on their performance and develop their fitness, stamina and endurance skills.

Many pupils take part in county and national competitions, including the ESAA Cross Country Cup, National Preparatory Schools Championships, the Somerset Schools Championships and the South West Championships.
