Marist College opened on Cottingham Road, Hull in 1925. A voluntary aided Roman Catholic school, it later merged with St Mary’s High School to become St Mary’s College in 1988.

Now officially a sports college, St Mary’s can take pride in a rich sporting pedigree and with this video comes an example of the early sports activities of one of its predecessor schools. The footage shows javelin-throwing, running, long-jump and discus events, as well as the trophy presentations that followed.

    I was at Marist from 1952 to 1960. I think this is earlier than 1964 as I recognise many of the lads in it. The one in the blue tee shirt is Chris Collingwood, I think. Frs Agnew, Howarth and Salmon are all there in the film. One older lad goes up twice, he was the year below me, think his name was Jackson.

      You are absolutely correct it is not 1964 as I am in the film and left in 1963. Chris Collingwood was a year above me. I guess it’s either 1961 or 1962.Yes it was Peter Jackson I recall him being 2 years ahead of me. Think he swam for Yorkshire
