The pupils all took part in a variety of running, jumping and throwing athletics events.

The focus for this event was participation and enjoyment for all, with schools bringing their entire year group to have a go and improve on their personal best.

The event was run by School Sports Partnership staff at Harris CofE Academy with superb support from young leaders in Year 7 at Rugby Free Secondary School.

These young leaders led excellent warm up and cool down sessions, demonstrations, offered coaching points and scoring.
