Other Info:
The track was built in 1989/90 and 2 lanes were resurfaced in 1995. It is sometimes referred to as the Bromfield Track after an old master at the school but there is no sign to this effect at the track. There is an announcer's pavilion by the finish and the runways are coloured green. The PV was moved back 3 metres away from the track edge in 2001 to ensure the track could gain certification. The track was also cleaned and relined in 2001. The track is being fully resurfaced in autumn 2005.
