At the end of September, we hold our own inter-house cross country race, the top runners from which are then invited to compete in the Epsom and Ewell District event in October.
Every November all year groups take part in a Sports Hall (indoor) Athletics tournament, which is always great fun and gives the opportunity for winning schools to progress to the county-level event.
All children take part in a "Weekly Mile" regime.
We take part in Epsom and Ewell athletic events such as during the Summer term the District Sports Field Events and Track Events at Xcel Sports Hub.

The first 4 boys and 4 girls in the upper school (Year 5 or 6) have been selected to attend the District Cross Country Tournament at Sutton Grammar Sports Ground on the 11th October from 3.30pm to 4.45pm. Parents will need to collect their participating children up early and arrange their own transport to and from the event.

Epsom & Ewell Cross Country Success: The selected children did extremely well for Wallace Fields Junior School in the District County Cross Country. Kasper Q came second in the boys run and Edie K coming first in the girls - this is at district level (not the school cross country). Great pride and congratulations to them and to the whole team that represented our school.

Epsom and Ewell Track Events at Xcel Sports Hub - Thursday 13th July 2023
Class teachers selected 2 girls and 2 boys in each year group to compete in the sprints and middle distance as well as select one girl relay team (4 runners) and one boy relay team (4 runners) from each year group.
The Epsom And Ewell Track events took place on Thursday at the Xcel Hub in Walton on Thames. Our Year 6's were greatly missed due to the France trip this week, this meant that WFJS were never going to score highly overall with one year group missing. Aside from this, our Athletes were AMAZING! Great to see WFJS children putting every bit of effort into the events. We managed to collect medals in the 800m, 600m, sprint and relay.
Thank you to all the children for your enthusiasm and efforts. Thank you to the parents for supporting the children, as well shuttling them to and from the event. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs Louise Wilson for your invaluable support, and also thank you to Miss Grover and Mrs Langner, who supervised and cheered the children on the day.
