The school also has close ties to local athletics clubs such as Belgrave Harriers, Croydon Harriers and South London Harriers. This often leads to boys competing at club level. Many boys from the school have gone on to compete for Surrey in the national championships in Birmingham and Newcastle.

The school partakes in many track and field events; these include 100m to 1500m races, hurdles, javelin, shot put, discus, long jump, high jump, and triple jump. If there are any events in which the school doesn’t compete, but a student wishes to try, the school makes every effort to accommodate them. Wilson’s often use the David Weir Centre’s facilities in the run up to competitions in order to prepare the boys as well as possible.

Athletics at Wilson’s doesn’t just promote individual achievement; it also encourages students to grow socially and work as a team, as it is team success that allows the school to progress in tournaments and leagues. Any boy attending Wilson’s is encouraged to try for a place in the athletics team, as it is an enjoyable and worthwhile activity.
