It’s been a triumphant term for athletics at Oakham School, with wins across all their regional meets, an impressive haul of 37 medals from the County Championships, and 10 younger athletes qualifying for the IAPS National Finals.

The last full athletics meeting of the term came to a triumphant end with Oakham finishing as overall winners of both Boys and Girls events at Uppingham. With previous wins at the Oakham relays, as well as at Rugby and Oundle, it has been another successful summer for both teams.

A total of 17 gold medals were won at the County Championships, held in Leicester - including Helen Braybrook setting a new county record for the U13 Girls 1200m, and Alicia Schwarzenbach setting a new school record for the U19 Girls 400m. Silver medallists, of which there were 11 in total, also included a new school record for Maxwell Koczulab in the U15 Boys 800m. Nine pupils also won bronze medals.

Ten of Oakham’s younger athletes qualified for IAPS National Finals after a fantastic day at the IAPS Eastern Regional Finals in Bedford.

This is particularly impressive given that 50 schools took part in the event.

Oakham School director of athletics James Clarke said: “Over the last few weeks these lower school pupils have worked incredibly hard, and these results are a great reward for their efforts.

“They can now look forward to competing in Birmingham on Wednesday amongst the best IAPS athletes in the country.”
