Athletics has a strong tradition in the school and training is offered on a weekly basis to all that are interested. Cross country is offered until March and concentration on track and field from March to June.

We have been lucky over the years to have a rich vein of talent come through our gates which has resulted in All Ireland team cross country golds at senior level in 2004 and 2014. We have also won all Ireland titles at minor and junior levels in both cross country and track and field. A good number of our students have won athletic scholarships to universities in the United States, Ireland and the UK.


However, the main emphasis is on athletics as a sport for life and a lifestyle sport. As it’s one that requires a minimum amount of equipment our biggest desire is that any girl choosing to participate will leave the school with a desire to run at her own level be that at a keep fit level or elite running level long after she has finished her academic studies with UCT.
