Year 8 students Matthew Gould set a new Year 8 shot school record and Tom Blackford was also a record breaker for the 1500m.
Rick Orkney, head of PE, said: "This year's sports day proved to be busier and more successful than ever.
"After having to cancel sports day in the summer on an unprecedented three occasions we managed to rearrange and hold it in September this year.
"All our new Year 7 students competed in a 50m sprint, and we followed a London 2012 theme with our classics dept arranging a series of Greek-Roman games on an adjacent field which included tug of war, toga relay, standing long jump with hand weights, and javelin."
