The Judd School opened their new sports fields at Vizards, a 26 acre site adjacent to Haysden Country Park, less than half a mile away from Judd. The 3G rugby pitch will also be used by Tonbridge Juddians on weekday evenings and Sundays during the rugby season, as well as by other community sports groups. The playing fields have been purchased and developed through the kind generosity of parents, Old Juddians and friends, who support the school’s Development Fund, as well as Kent County Council. Judd have vacated their former playing fields at Yeomans to facilitate the relocation of Ridge View School into purpose-built accommodation ready for September 2017.
Headmaster, Robert Masters, thanked everyone who had given invaluable input into the long process of purchasing and converting the former farmland, saying that “The Judd School has always had a strong reputation in the sports arena and I am delighted that our students now have such a fantastic facility in which to train and play. I am also pleased that we have been able to help Ridge View School find a new site, as they had been looking for suitable land for some time”.
