Ballard School – Sports’ Report #15

Athletic success on Track and Field in Bournemouth

We had a fantastic day recently at the New Forest athletics event at Kings Park stadium in Bournemouth.  The pupils that we took were fantastic, and did Ballard School proud.  Even though we were competing against some very big state schools, we had some excellent results, and it was great to see all of the pupils trying their hardest, and putting in maximum effort in every event.

Over the course of the meet we had 4 winners in U13 80m Sprint, U17 High Jump, U17 Long Jump and U15 800m. Our field sports success continued in Javelin, Long Jump, Discus and High Jump with podium finishers as well as 1500m and 200m races.

Enabling pupils to attend these wider sporting events is no mean feat! Thanks goes out to all Staff – those helping and assisting in their training, the PE department for their hard work in athletics lessons and clubs as well as all staff who support the school to allow such days to occur.


In our previous Sports’ Report we touched on our recent Staff vs U16 Cricket match. A closely contested game with the staff coming out as winners – just! Here are two of the photos from that game. One is certainly an action shot for Mr S!

Our thanks to one of our parents for these photographs.
