English Schools’ Athletic Association Walk of Fame

English Schools’ Athletic Association was formed in 1925 to allow school athletes to compete at regional, national and international level. Many of our best-known elite athletes have competed at English Schools.

English Schools’ Athletic Association Walk of Fame is a new pop-up exhibition launching at the ESAA Championship 2023. It celebrates athletes and officials whose journey through English Schools has led them to great things. The ESAA Walk of Fame will grow each year as new names are added. Our inaugural cohort are four inspiring individuals who are either still competing or initiating, or have recently retired from competition.

Click the images to find out how it all started, what they have achieved since English Schools’, and what advice they have for this year’s competitors.
