P.E. & Sport
At NHEHS our strengths lie in offering all girls an opportunity to participate in a sport or activity they enjoy, yet also offering a wide range of competitive sport.
We enjoy outstanding indoor facilities with a state-of-the-art, four court sports hall, dance studio and 25m swimming pool. Together with our all-weather, astro-turf, pitch and courts these provide opportunities for all our girls to enjoy a wide breadth of activities, as well as taking part in traditional team sports such as netball and hockey.
Sport and PE are part of everyone’s timetable from Year 7 right up to Year 13. We want every girl to find a sport or activity which she can enjoy and we encourage wide participation through offering sports such as trampolining, running, badminton, cricket and football . We also offer the chance to experience a range of fitness classes including zumba, yoga and kickboxing.
We field a large number of teams and compete against local schools in county and national GDST competitions. In recent years we have reached the finals of the Middlesex netball tournament and last year we won the inaugaral GDST Year 7 netball tournament. We also ensure that a range of competitive opportunities are given in cross country (we are currently defending our Ealing borough title), swimming, waterpolo (this year and last we reached the national finals of the ESSA competition), athletics, cricket, tennis and rounders. Many of our girls enjoy participating in school based clubs too, with over two thirds of Year 7 regularly attending our netball club!
We are very proud that we also have girls who superbly juggle their academic life with competing at the very top level. Currently NHEHS girls are members of local club, county and national squads in sports which include hockey, netball, swimming and trampolining.
