Games, gym, dance and swimming are all popular at NHEHS. There are 2 to 3 classes each week, depending on age, always taught by a specialist PE teacher.
For the younger girls much of the activity revolves around developing co-ordination, balance and ball skills.
As they get older they are introduced to the rules and skills of games such as netball and rounders and get the chance to try running and some athletics. The emphasis is always on taking part, enjoying yourself and doing your best.
Girls from Year 5 and Year 6 can try for places in school teams and take part in fixtures and tournaments against other London schools, as well as the GDST netball, cross country and swimming rallies.
All classes will swim at some point in the year, using the pool in the Senior School and swimming squads and teams involve girls from Year 3 upwards.
