Students from year 9,10 and 12 represented Barnhill in their capacity of a sports leader at the London Youth Games Final at Harrow Leisure centre with secondary students competing in the morning and primary in the afternoon. Over 200 students throughout the day. The feedback from staff has been outstanding and the work and effort put in by the leaders is something to be desired. They are solely responsible for the running of the SHA which can be a complicated event with highly enthusiastic and competitive students and staff from all schools.


They have managed themselves and once again our leaders have done themselves and the school very proud and are a credit to the school.

LYG SHA FINALs 2019/20

Barnhill and Meadow Leaders last week ran the SHSSN area C4L festival, providing opportunities for pupils that may not normally get to take part in activities outside of their own school environment. There were 7 schools and their pupils having fun and enjoying being active and gaining in confidence as a result. It was great to see Meadow and Barnhill leaders having such positive interactions with the primary pupils and themselves gaining in confidence and self esteem

Hillingdon Primary Panathlon 2019/20

Barnhill Leaders were fantastic at running the Inclusive Primary Panathlon this week. They helped lead pupils with SEND from 11 different primary school in various activities. They showed that have great leadership skills, making sure that all pupils had a fun, were included and had a positive experience of competition at Barnhill Community High. This Year Hillingdon Primary School won through to the finals due to take place at the Copper Box.

SHSSN Tasters

SHSSN Tasters have started in our Primary schools, with Taekwondo, Rugby and cricket already taken place. We are linking our schools with TKD Taekwondo, Hillingdon Athletics Club and Hillingdon Cricket Alliance. Their coaches  have been leading sessions, supported by Barnhill, Meadow & Oakwood leaders. As you can see the leaders are fully involved with the sessions and some have now been asked to help with after school clubs due to the leadership skills they are showing.


SHSSN leaders were asked to help at the London Youth Games Boccia Competition at the Westway in Hammersmith, officiating the finals of the Y6 and Under competition.

This is the feedback from the LYG:

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the wonderful team of young officials that you bought to the LYG Boccia on Tuesday.   They all worked extremely hard and you could see their confidence growing all the time.  It’s so lovely to be able to work with kids like this it makes the whole event so much better!"

SHSSN Bronze Ambassadors Conference 2019-20

Barnhill Platinum, Gold and Silver ambassadors ran this years Bronze Ambassadors Conference for Y5/6 pupils at our SHSSN primary schools.   The event was organised by Barnhill's experienced ambassadors who worked with the primary student to help them go back into their own school as leaders and advocates of getting others active at their lunch and break times. 

It was great to see the bronze ambassadors grow in confidence and have some fantastic ideas on how to get their schools active.

SHSSN Leadership Academy Launch 2019-20

On the 19th September 2020, the newly appointed student leaders from Barnhill Community High School, Oakwood and Meadow High School took part in the SHSSN Leadership Academy Launch. 45 students from these schools from year eight to eleven were trained by Barnhill Gold and Platinum Ambassadors on what qualities a leader should have and display when leading others. They were also trained in ways to help get pupils within their own school active, how to help with after schools clubs, teams and primary school competitions .


Hillingdon Primary Panathlon Training

SHSSN Leaders ran the Hillingdon Primary Panathlon this year with over 10 different primary schools entering and taking part in a variety of inclusive activities. Student had a fantastic experience learning to be part of a team and compete against other school in a friendly and supportive environment

Step In to Sport - Inclusive Workshop

In January 2020, the Step into Sport Inclusive Leadership workshop for young people with and without SEND was hosted at Wembley Stadium. The workshop focused on the development of leadership skills in young people with SEND, with an increased emphasis on further training and deployment opportunities in workforce specific roles.


Four of our Student Leaders attended and were given the opportunity to develop these new skills which will support the Young Leaders to develop more opportunities for pupils with SEN and disabilities to engage in sport activities and competitions.

Barnhill leaders ran two Change4Life Festivals last year, both hosted at Barnhill. Primary Schools who had C4L clubs running within their own school were invited into to attend a fun filled morning of various activities to help build their confidence and help develop their social skills with others. Both the leaders and the participants from the 6 primary schools that attend had great fun and show that everyone can get themselves active and have fun.

Change4life Festivals


Barnhill Community High School, hosted the three preliminary, primary sports hall athletics rounds and the secondary sports hall athletics finals. These events have been supported by our Student Leaders, who have helped to set up and clear away the competition, officiated during the field and track events as well as record score and times. They have been extremely helpful and have contributed to the smooth running of the competition along with the PE staff at Barnhill Community High. These events are school games competitions that lead through to the London Youth Games Finals later in the year.

Tri-Golf Festival

On the 21st October 2016, Barnhill Community High School hosted a Tri-Golf tournament involving six local primary schools aimed at Year 2 through to 6. School involved within the competition included Oak Farm Infants, Hayes Park, Highfield, Yeading Infants, St Bernadettes and Ryefield.
