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.
