Athletics has a strong tradition. The College’s teams are involved in a full set of home and away fixtures, including a new diamond league format, as well as the Sussex AAA county schools championships.
The pupils train on College facilities, as well as at the tartan running track at Eastbourne Sports Park during games sessions. There is a strong link with Sussex Athletics and local clubs if pupils wish to carry on their training and compete outside of the College programme. There is also an annual athletics day with boys and girls competing individually and for their houses.
