Borough Primary Athletics Championships 2023

19th June 2023

Friday 16th June 2023 saw MSSP host the Primary Athletics Championships for the first time in 24 months. The 2022 edition had to be cancelled due to the severe heat conditions but we were tremendously excited to be back this year with 20 teams all eager to do well over the track and field events at Raynes Park High School Sports Ground.


240 pupils took part across the whole day with each participant entering 1 track event, 1 field event and the team relay.

The day began with 10 x 600m races for both boys and girls across 5 allocated groups. This format continued in a carousel of field events in shot, dicus, vortex throw, standing long jump and standing triple jump as well as the 80m and 150m sprints.

The relays were the last event of the day but carried the most excitement as all individuals took one of 6 legs each around the 400m grass track.

The schools and teams crested such an atmosphere and a perfect end to the day was completed with a medal and trophy presentation under the glorious afternoon sunshine.

Thank you to all our year 12 sports leaders from RPHS for assisting the events on the day and to Miss McCourt for facilitating the leaders to be able to help.

Well done to all our individual winners, runners up and third place finishers, a list of which can be found below, and a special congratulations to our overall team winners St Peter and St Paul for topping the point standings at the end of the day. Bishop Gilpin claimed Silver with a tie for third place between Hollymount and Poplar.
