Athletics is a major sport in both the Juniors and the Seniors throughout the Summer Term. The various athletics disciplines are taught during PE lessons and pupils can also choose to participate and develop their skills further at the after-school Athletics Club.

Athletes compete in the Macclesfield & District Athletics Championships and the ESAA Schools’ Cup Athletics competition. King’s pupils regularly qualify to represent Macclesfield at the Cheshire Schools’ Athletics Championships and our junior and inter teams annually qualify for the Regional Finals of the ESAA Schools’ Cup competition.

Several successful athletes who have gained national qualifying standards at the Cheshire Schools’
