Inter Schools Athletic Sports Programme

Title

Inter Schools Athletic Sports Programme

Description

The summer term still plays host to many sporting fixtures both on and off campus. In this week's Amazing Archives, we found the programme from the Inter-School Athletic Sports Competition from 1939. The School still competes in this competition today but it is now called Wyre and Fylde Athletics.
The event was held at Blackpool Cricket Ground and pupils represented the School in running, jumping and throwing events. Rossall were victorious 1938 and 1939, beating Blackpool Grammar and Lancaster Grammar into second and third place respectively.
