We want our children to be as active as possible and we are proud to be the holders of the School Games Mark Bronze Award.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success. In 2018/2019 we were also nominated in the Wandsworth Active Sports Awards.

Competitive Sport

We employ specialist sports coaches from Kick London to come in twice a week for PE lessons and they also run some of our after school clubs because we want our pupils to have the best opportunities to learn new skills and to be as active as possible. To that end we enter many competitions in the borough and have a netball, boys football, girls football and cricket teams who compete on a regular basis at Dover House Road with other schools in the borough. We also take part in the borough cross country competition annually. Dance is very popular at West Hill and we were proud to compete in the Great Big Dance Off at Wimbledon Theatre. We are an inclusive school so we take a team to the annual Panathlon competition and this year came 3rd! We also have internal competitions including the West Hill House Cup which every pupil gets involved in and has a great time at the same time as being active.

Power 10.

We currently run a fitness programme called ‘Power 10’. This is ten minutes of physical activity every day which could be the Daily Mile (which we started in 2017), cardio vascular activities and circuits. This involves all our pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 and it helps to improve our fitness, make children aware of their health and is fully inclusive. Children return to the classroom ready to learn and more able to concentrate. We even welcomed Andy Murray here in 2018 to run with the children!
