As the athletics season comes to a close, we look back with immense pride at the incredible accomplishments of our school's talented athletes. Throughout the season, a phenomenal number of pupils have represented us with great determination, setting high standards for next year.
During their time at RHS, pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of athletic activities.
In Years 7 and 8, pupils will learn the fundamentals of long-jump, high-jump, shot put, javelin, discus, short and long distance running, and hurdles. From Years 9 to 13, they can refine their skills and learn how to push themselves to discover their full potential. Pupils can engage in athletics during games afternoons, core PE lessons, after-school clubs, and as a co-curricular activity for all years.
Pupils get to participate in a wide range of competitions, including those with other local and regional schools, and ESAA events. Talented pupils who show great potential in a specific discipline are given support and stretched to achieve their best. Individuals and teams are entered in local, regional, and national competitions. A number of pupils have become county champions across a range of events, with some going on to represent the school and Suffolk at the finals of the English Schools’ Track and Field Championships.
Our annual Sports Day is a fantastic showcase held on the penultimate weekend of the Summer term, with athletes across the houses competing for individual and team success. The elite performers tend to inspire other members of their house to rise to the occasion, resulting in a very enjoyable day for pupils, staff and parents alike.
On Sunday 19 June RHS travelled to UEA, Norwich for the Anglian Athletics Championships.
RHS athletes took part in the Suffolk County Athletics Championships at West Suffolk Arena.
