Athletics is one of the key summer sports at Hampton School. In the first three years all boys are introduced to the different athletic disciplines as part of the physical education curriculum. Boys are also free to choose athletics as one of their sports options in the summer term. The School has a great deal of success, both locally and nationally and has a competitive fixture programme.


  • 300m grass track
  • All weather run up for long, triple and high jump.
  • Shotput and Discus Circles
  • Equipment for all disciplines for both indoor and outdoor coaching

The School runs an Athletics Club which is open to all boys, with training sessions available every lunchtime and some Saturdays.

Competitions include the English Schools’ Track & Field Cup held at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, the Achilles Relays at the Iffley Road Sports Centre, the Richmond Borough Athletics Competition and the Combined English Schools’ Events. The School also enjoys athletics meets hosted by Harrow School and The John Fisher School.

Our athletes are supported by professional coaches across multiple disciplines, who help develop technique and performance.
