Athletics

Judd has a great pedigree in Athletics. Throughout the summer term the School hosts weekly (Thursday) matches against local schools which gives all younger boys a chance to compete. A focus for the elite is the National Schools' Cup; consistently strong results at both Junior (Y7/8) and Intermediate (Y9/10) level over the last decade led to the School's selection to represent English Schools' at the 2017 ISF World Schools' Athletics Championships in Nancy, France. Uniquely, Judd teams compete against clubs in the Kent Young Athletes' League (KYAL) and offers plenty of opportuntites for athletes to compete in the county championships. Every year many athletes go on to represent Kent and many place highly in the national rankings. Support is offered to all regardless of ability.

Every lunchtime and after School in the summer term there are jumping (high / long / triple), throwing (discus / shot / javelin) and running (sprints / middle distance) practices on offer for all ages delivered by specialist teachers. Hammer coaching is offered every Friday after School all year. Sportshall (Indoor Athletics) provides good training and competitive outings for keen athletes in the winter.

Parental help with officiating at matches (especially the KYAL) is much appreciated and several parents have kindly offered to become qualified. Students can become qualified too and the commitment might satisfy volunteering requirements for the D of E Award. Queries to Mr Taylor.
