Athletics takes place in term 1 and is a very short season, starting with the school’s annual Inter-House athletics meeting which focuses largely on mass participation.
The schools' track & field team is selected shortly afterwards and participate in approximately five athletics meetings thereafter, with the highlight being the annual Prestige Athletics meeting, at which Alberton High School is the only English speaking school participating.
A reasonable number of athletes are selected for the Alberton area team, progressing later onto the District team, with a limited number qualifying for the Gauteng District Championships.
