St. Anselm’s College has a rich tradition in Athletics, regularly competing in the English Schools Cup to a National level at both Key Stage 3 & 4. We also have many students selected to compete at County level and who obtain qualifying standards at a National level. Past athletes have included Ikem Billy who represented Great Britain in the 800m and Graeme Matthews won the Triple Jump Gold Medal at the Junior Commonwealth Games in 2005.
All boys are introduced to Athletics events during their PE lessons and the opportunity to train and develop talents further is presented through Games lessons and in extra-curricular clubs held every day during the summer season. The College has good facilities including a throwing cage and indoor pole vault. St. Anselm’s also has strong ties with Wirral Athletics Club where students are given further opportunities to train alongside very experienced coaches at The Oval athletics centre. In 2015 the Boys U15 team won the North West round of the English Schools Cup. In the final in Bedford they came 12th Nationally. You can read the full story here.
