South Warwickshire Athletics Championships

Our Year 7, 8, and 9 athletes competed in the South Warwickshire Athletics Championships at Stratford upon Avon on Thursday 20th June and achieved outstanding success, finishing third overall out of nine schools in total. The teams’ combined overall results matched last years’, meaning we are again the best non selective school in the district, being only four points away from finishing second. A great result!

The best news of all however, is that the Year 9 boys and girls both finished first in their respective age groups! This is something that we as a school have never achieved before! The students were so happy when the results were being announced and deserve all the praise we can give them. What a great way to end their athletics championships journey at Shipston High School.

The Year 7 boys finished third and the girls were placed fourth, a great start to their athletics championships and one which will certainly improve. The Year 8 boys were placed ninth, the girls finishing sixth. There were some excellent individual performances but also some areas of improvement for the team to take onboard next year.
