Whitgift’s Athletics programme supports students at all levels, whether competition or recreational, and is closely tied with Core PE.

Every student experiences Athletics training with the opportunity to develop to their full potential through practice, training and competition. There are multiple sessions each week, including specific lunchtime clinics for all students. Our approach to coaching  instills an appreciation for the benefits of hard work and motivation and promotes having pride in the journey to attaining personal goals. 

Whitgift has a 300m grass track, multiple jump areas for long jump, triple jump and  high jump, with 4 beds, a Discus cage and shot putt circle. Students also enjoy the full throw and track facilities at Woodcote Schools  for weekly games sessions.

Students can join the U17, U15, U14, U13, U12 and U11 teams  as well as participating individually for Surrey and in the English Schools competitions.
