Wellington School has a strong reputation in Track & Field Athletics throughout the Southwest. Athletic development underpins all of our sport at school.
The School engages in regular competition, both at Inter-School level and at representative level. There are opportunities to represent Somerset and also to continue on to the highest level of schools competition and there are many regional and national champions at the school. A recent leaver has taken up an athletics scholarship at an American university.
There is provision for coaching and development across all ages, from grass roots level to more advanced and elite skills. These take place during sports sessions, after-school activity time and, for the more elite track athletes, a session at the Castle School Track, Taunton. In addition, many of our athletes join local clubs to gain further expertise in their chosen areas as well as attend coaching seminars held by Somerset County Athletics Association.
