Nana and Dom are now among the top ranked boys in the country in their respective events, and will go on to represent Berkshire at the National Schools’ Championships in Birmingham in July.

Also, Will Ryle-Hodges RGGP turned in a wonderful 3000m run of 9.06.4 to knock 12 seconds off the old record, held by Duncan Bailey, who used to teach at Eton and is now Head Master of the Château de Sauveterre.

The other winners were:

Senior Shane Adams IH (pole vault), Guy MacInnes-Manby PBS (hurdles), Henry Ashcroft OS GRP (shot), Alastair Johnson KS (discus), Henry Taylor DMG (200m)

Inter Charlie Harris PBS (triple jump)

Junior Leo Clayton ME PBS (pole vault)

Many congratulations to all those boys.
