On Tuesday 16th January the School Sports Partnership delivered the first of our young leaders courses at Kingsbury High School. Ten year 5 students from Sinai, Lyon Park and Uxendon Manor primary schools received leadership training in the morning. They then practiced leading activities in the afternoon at one of our family festivals where we had 210 Yr 3 students from Roe Green, Kingsbury Green, Oliver Goldsmith, Fryent and St Robert Southwell. Following on from this the leaders will be expected to deliver an extra-curricular club to inactive children and also a festival within their school.
We will be hosting another 250 children from year 4 & 5 on Tuesday 23rd January.
KHS celebrated two days where all the students and staff came together for the schools’ third Olympiad in its history. The Year 13 students had to organise an event for about 30 students as part of one of their modules, instead they turned to Ms Woodrow, wanting to organise an event for the whole school, over two days. They have worked hard to organise such a huge project. We are very proud of our student leaders and the work that they do for the School.
91 teams, all named after former members of staff, baked, made art, danced, completed team challenges, went on a treasure hunt, took part in quizzes and maths challenges, sang, performed, competed in relays, posed as a 50 for a drone and all ended up in the K sports hall for a big finale.
The KHS flag was handed over from the former head boy and head girl to the new student leadership team and all 1700 students sang the Kingsbury song they were taught during one of the sessions. Huge congratulations to all the students for organising this event and creating the legacy.

Year 10 Kingsbury High students recently worked with girls in Year 5 from Oliver Goldsmith and Roe Green schools as part of the Youth Sports Trust ‘Girls Active’ campaign with Kingsbury School Sports Partnership.
They introduced taster sessions in activities such as dodgeball and boxercise to inspire the younger girls to increase their partaking in extra-curricular activities. Clubs in both activities will be available for the students to sign up to in the New Year.
On Tuesday 3rd February School Sports Partnership got together with Sports Leaders UK to deliver a training session at Kingsbury High School.
The training, on how to run an Energy Club, was delivered to a selection of Kingsbury High’s Sixth Form Sports Leaders and local primary school teachers.
Energy Club is an initiative designed to offer young children, aged between 4 and 11, a fun and informative introduction to physical activity. Tuesday’s training will allow local primary schools to become accredited Energy Club centres; and Kingsbury High’s Sports Leaders to deliver Energy Club sessions to primary school children.
School Sports Co‐ordinator, Ashley Dunne-Watts said “The training was fun, active and gave me great confidence. It had a large variety of games which I can now use at my school.”
