September 2021 — Welcome back
The return to normality has meant the PE department has been able to begin the year with an extensive and popular extra-curricular programme.
We have been delighted to welcome huge numbers to our clubs, currently running, rugby, football, dance, netball, fitness, volleyball and badminton for both boys and girls across all year groups.
In the coming weeks, we will also return to competitive fixtures, taking on our local rivals across the borough in fixtures and tournaments for all sports. Watch this space for an update on upcoming fixtures, results and the star players and performers in each of our teams!
We would like to say a huge well done to everyone that has joined and participated in a club already this term. However, we would also like to encourage all students to get involved in the extra-curricular opportunities available, whether that be to gain a competitive edge, refine and improve specific skills, or simply to become active and increase fitness levels.
Well what a year we have had. Whilst it has been extremely challenging in and out of the classroom, it has been fantastic to see our pupils grow and develop.
This term has seen the return of our Summer sports and clubs, which has been fantastic, as this was missed out on last academic year. Pupils took part in Athletics, Cricket, Rounders, Softball, Tennis, Basketball and Gaelic Football. Fixtures are still currently postponed until further notice with this constantly being reviewed based around government guidance and pupil well-fare, although we are hoping we can move forward with this come September 2021.
Pupils took part in National School Sports week, competing in teams for different sport titles. Activities ranged from our very own Euro 2020 competition, Crossfit challenges, well-being hour and sports from around the world. All pupils got stuck in, and it was great to see a variety of sports tops worn in lessons. Check out our social media pages (Twitter — @UHSPE, Instagram — @uxbridgehigh) for more information.
We would like to offer our good luck wishes to all Year 11 and 13 sports pupils receiving their results this year. You pushed through on a very challenging year and deserve all the grades you will receive.
Finally, we want to wish all our pupils at UHS a good and safe summer, and we will see you in September.
