Athletics is open to all boys in the Trinity Term and sees boys take part in a range of competitive fixtures, from Inter-School team events to individuals challenging to represent Dorset at the English Schools’ Championships.

Training sessions during the summer are led by experienced internal and external coaches and offer boys the chance to develop skills in new events or to perfect their technique in areas that are more familiar.

While training is largely based on Careys, the boys also make use of the Yeovil track, where we also host our own Inter-School events. The Sherborne-run Lutra Shield is always a highlight of the season for example, while boys enjoy regular competition at a range of levels across the south-west.

Sherborne Girls often join forces with our squads for team competitions during the summer season and in a really exciting development we are looking forward to expanding the number of joint training sessions that were launched so successfully last year.
