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 celebrates athletes and officials whose journey through English Schools has led them to great things. The ESAA Walk of Fame was instigated in 2023, with a pop up exhibition at the English Schools’ AA Championships. Each year new names are added.
