Borough Athletics

Congratulations to the Nelson Athletics Team who took part, along with 37 other primary schools, in the Richmond Schools Borough Sports on Wednesday 5th June at St Mary’s College, Strawberry Hill. On that day, nearly 600 pupils competed in running, throwing and long jump events. Our team consisted of:

  • Dominykas, Egle, Lila and Ollie in Year 4,
  • Aishpreet, Ellie, Jude, Romeo in Year 5,
  • Abigail, Bertie, Ethan, Lily, Maya, Micah, Sam and Sophie in Year 6.


Our success, both as a team and individually was outstanding and this is a reflection of the hard work our athletes have put into their training over the past few months.

Year 4 and 5

We came 3rd overall out of the 38 schools that took part.

  • Lila – 3rd top long distance runner and 4th top sprinter
  • Ellie – 3rd top sprinter
  • Aishpreet – 2nd top jumper and 4th top thrower

Year 6

We came 12th, moving up 13 places from last year.

  • Lily – 5th top sprinter
  • Maya – 5th top thrower

The results of their amazing achievements can be found on the website. It has been a privilege to train such a committed group of athletes and we look forward to building on these achievements in the future. Mrs Church.
