Across the Junior and Senior School we enter the Pentathlon GB Biathlon competitions, this series of qualifying events lead to the overall National Biathlon finals held in Solihull each November and the National schools Biathlon finals in March at Crystal Palace.
Pupils have to swim from 50m to 200m and run 800m to 1600m depending on their age category. All timings equate to points with the top points scores qualifying for the National finals.
We have great success with several pupils qualifying for both finals each year, even some of the staff join in too! At last years schools finals we had a top 10 placing and at the National overall finals a top 20 ranking. Two of our pupils have been talent spotted for a youth development programme!
