Welcome to sport, exercise and health at Westminster Academy.
Most students are well aware of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise. The numerous opportunities provided by our PE department also help boost students' self-esteem, self-confidence and resilience, as well as being lots of fun! WA holds a Healthy Schools London Gold Award. We offer:
Core PE lessons every week from Year 7 to Year 13
BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Sport, Activity and Fitness at key stage 4
A comprehensive sports extra-curricular activities programme, including inter-house competitions
Trishan Patel football mentoring
Greenhouse Sports basketball coaching and mentoring
Greenhouse Sports table tennis coaching and mentoring
Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA)
We run sports clubs every day, before school, during lunch and after school. These change every season. Our teams work hard, improving strength and skills, training for participation in local league and Westminster Sports Unit fixtures, as well as enjoying healthy activities with friends. You can download our current PE ECA timetable from the bottom of this page.
WA students benefit from specialised basketball and table tennis coaching and mentoring with our Greenhouse Sports coaches.
We are proud to have seen students develop through these dedicated programmes of training and mentoring, and experience individual success - with students being called up for the Basketball England Talent Programme selection camp in 2022, plus team success - with both our U14 Girls and U16 Boys teams winning the LBA Westminster league in 2022.
