Campion claimed a hat-trick of titles at the annual Havering district athletics championships last week.

The Hornchurch school’s year eight and year 10 squads finished well clear of their rivals, while the year nines pipped Coopers by three points.

And year 10 pupil Richard Akinyebo won the 100m in exactly 11 seconds to help Campion finish on 304 points and claim overall honours, ahead of Coopers (265), Emerson Park (185), St Edwards (168), Hall Mead (126), Gaynes (111) and Redden Court (104) among others.

“The year eights and year 10s were outstanding,” said teacher Neil Jones, having also seen Campion’s intermediate and junior boys’ squads finish fourth and fifth, respectively, at the National Track & Field Cup final in Oxford the week before.

He added: “To get through to the last 12 in a national final, from 600 schools, was an excellent achievement.”
