Athletics

Whitgift Athletics has a rich history and sporting pedigree, that supports and challenges students of all abilities. Our vision is to maximize every student’s potential, through providing an extensive range recreational opportunities, training, and competition. We believe in the appreciation of the benefits of hard work, integrity and encourage students pursue their ambitions with pride.

Every student experiences Athletics training within core PE lessons and has the opportunity to develop to their full potential through our co-curricular programme. There are multiple sessions each week, including specific lunchtime clinics for all students. 

For those students who wish to pursue competitive Athletics we have teams at  U17, U15, U14, U13, U12 and U11,  as well as representation for Whitgift and Surrey on an  individual basis in the English Schools competitions. In the last decade Whitgift has been extremely proud to celebrate numerous team and individual achievements including English Schools Athletics Association titles and National honours, through to team GB representation. 

Whitgift is extremely well resourced with a 300m grass track, 4 track and bed areas for long, triple and high jump, a Discus cage and shot putt circle. Students also enjoy the full throw and track facilities at our numerous off site hired venues. 

Our experience of coaching expertise, outstanding facilities and range of opportunities on offer make Athletics a must try sport at Whitgift. We encourage students of all abilities, shapes and sizes to get involved and who knows where your passion will take you?
