King’s see Success at ESSA Track and Field Cup 2022

On Tuesday 10th May, King’s Athletics had a fantastic afternoon at Round 1 of the English Schools Athletic Association (ESSA) Track and Field Cup, where our Junior Girls, Junior Boys, Inter Girls and Inter Boys all competed.

This is a unique event where every member of the team has to compete in both one track event and one field event, which adds an extra dimension to the competition, particularly when it comes to the relays.

It was great to see so many pupils out on the track and in the field representing the school, and also to witness their camaraderie whilst supporting their peers.
