The girls’ team comprised  Taiba (8S), Abigail (8S), Bami (8S), Gloria (8A), Jessica (7E), Kemi Louise (7E) and Jalia (7E). The boys’ team was Bolaji (8P), Edirin (8P), Rhys (8E), Nana (8S) and Shiek (7A). Jessica had this to say about her experiences:

'Being in the Athletics team is an amazing experience. I am nervous when I have to compete with year eights from other schools because I am in year seven. I get excited when I win. I have got better at running because I belong to a running club at Sutcliff Park. The Addey and Stanhope athletics team is very supportive of each other. I really want to be an athlete when I am older and the team at Addeys encourage me if I don’t feel like going'.
