New in 2017, our elite Athletics development programme allows young people to develop and enhance their performance in a range of Athletic events. The athletics sessions will be led by Mrs Cann and Miss Allason, who are both UKA qualified coaches at Basildon athletics club.

Our programme is designed to provide extra support and opportunities to young athletes who show commitment and passion within Athletics. There are three sessions a week, two before school and one after which will include a range of sessions such as strength and conditioning, event specific training and general fitness and power sessions. It allows the students to develop their skills and techniques during school hours, whilst making sure they continue to progress academically.

The coaches and teachers will have very high expectations for the students involved, pushing them to achieve their potential. This will be highly demanding mentally and physically but gives the students a great start on the road to becoming a dedicated and focused athlete.
