Athletics at CRGS is open to all, regardless of a pupil’s age, ability or previous experience. Pupils can participate across a range of disciplines, enjoying dedicated coaching and tailored training to help each individual reach his or her potential.

In the summer, pupils of all abilities can attend athletics sessions. Many represent the school in the Partnership and North Essex Championships, the Essex Schools championships and, for exceptional athletes, the English Schools championship. The school regularly achieves regional final status in the English Schools Track and Field cup.

Athletics training takes place both at lunchtime and after school. In addition to this specialist sessions are organised at Colchester Garrison where guest coaches work with our athletes.
