Athletics is very important at Eaton House Belgravia Prep and we enjoy many varieties of the sport.

At our sports day we were delighted to participate in a variety of sports which included traditional running races and relay. House challenges are always exciting for the boys as it is a great honour to win for your team and your house, and merits are an additional bonus!

We all enjoy running cross-country and we are lucky to have nearby Battersea Park and Clapham Common for green and unhindered runs. The fitness and conditioning that athletics and cross country build up are essential to our successful pursuit of many other sports.

Sports day took place on a fine summer's day. All the children participated in a running heat, a whole-school obstacle race, and the tug of war heats and finals. Year 3 children completed a hurdle race and a senior house relay.

There were some stand-out performances by Year 3 in the senior house relay. One exceptionally gifted sportsman took away the Eaton House Belgravia Prep Victor Ludorum trophy, which is awarded for overall sporting prowess at sports day. Well done!
