Conditions were hot and so were many of the performances at a sunny Alexander Stadium in Birmingham as the English Schools Championships returned for the 83rd year.

Sprinter Kesi Oludoyi and hurdler Hayley McLean were among those to steal the show with two championship best performances apiece but plenty of other athletes were also getting heads turning for all the right reasons.

Take a look at our photo gallery below, courtesy of student photographer Philippa Brett, and remember the faces you see – most of Britain’s senior elite had their first taste of national success at the English Schools Championships and the 2013 event will no doubt prove to have been a breeding ground of future champions.
