Houghton Regis Academy

District Athletics Championships

Students attended the District Athletics Championships at Stockwood Park Athletics Centre on Wednesday 6th June 2018. A very hot day, but with a good turnout from other schools in the Bedfordshire region, competing in field and track events.

We have three students selected to run for south Bedfordshire in the next athletics championships next Wednesday 11th June at Bedford International Athletics Stadium.
If they do well the next stage is selection for the English Schools Athletics Association which is on the national pathway for Athletics and selection for the National Development Programme.
It is also important that youngsters in schools are given a positive experience in athletics and that, wherever possible, this is aligned to the work done by clubs. In many instances clubs are playing a key role in supporting the provision of athletics in Schools.
Athletics is one of the sports involved in the School Games, and England Athletics has worked to produce resources that can be used at all levels of the School Games programme. To find out more about work with the School Games and Access resources please click here.
