Rivers Academy Sports Day


During the summer term, we have our annual sports day.  Every child takes part in our sports day in some way as either an athlete or as a supporter. Field events take place in the morning with students from each house in year 7-10 competing in the following events.
  • Discus

  • Shot Putt

  • Javelin

  • Triple Jump

  • Long Jump

  • High Jump


The day culminates with the track events when the whole school turns out to watch the more traditional running races.

The main emphasis is on enjoyment, improving personal performances, skill development, fitness and participation by all. All children contribute points to their School House for each event they participate in.
