Welbeck Physical Fitness Standard

Students will undertake a Welbeck Fitness Assessment (WFA) each term. This includes 3 components: a 1.5 mile run, sit ups (with feet supported) and press ups.  You are expected to achieve the minimum standards outlined below:

  Male Female
Press Ups (2 Minutes) 44 21
Sit Ups (2 Minutes) 50 50
Run (1.5 Miles) 10:30 13:00

Whilst all students are expected to exceed these basic requirements this pass standard is sufficient to qualify for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS) bursary, payable at university following attendance at Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College.

You will be given every opportunity to improve your fitness during your time at the College but ultimately the responsibility for training and reaching the standards is yours.  If you fail to reach the minimum standards at Welbeck you will put at risk your progression into the DTUS scheme post Welbeck.
