Mr. Sanderson, who has lost 7 stone this year and ran the Birmingham Half-Marathon earlier this month, started the Marathon Kids walking programme in the summer term of last school year.
When a pupil completes the equivalent of a marathon they receive a certificate at the school’s weekly merit assembly on a Friday.
Ethan said: “I’m just about to finish my third marathon.
“I thought I could actually make some lifestyle changes. It’s something better to do than play on my PS4.”
The Marathon Kids programme takes place everyday during a 20-minute period after the school lunch.
Mr. Sanderson added: “All the staff take part too. There’s a couple of staff who’ve lost stones in weight.
“My aim was to get everybody fit and healthy. Leading by example that’s what it is really.”
