Sports Day

Allianz Park; Greenlands Lanes, Hendon, London NW4 1RL

Date: Thursday 11th July

8.45am – 2.30pm.


Dear Parents/Carers

The London Academy Sports day will be taking place at Allianz Park, Greenlands Lanes, Hendon, London NW4 1RL. This will be a fun sports event which will involve all students and staff from London Academy. This is a compulsory school day therefore all pupils must attend. Failure to attend sports day will mean your son/daughter being marked with an ‘unauthorised absence’ on their School record and they will be placed in ‘correction’ the following day. If your son/daughter is absent due to illness/appointment on the day itself then you must contact the school absent phone line before July 11th or on the day itself before 8am.

As there are over 800 students involved in Sports Day your son/daughter is expected to make their own way to and from Allianz Park. The 221, 113 and the 186 all go to Allianz Park. Further details of how to get to the stadium by public transport will be explained to the students in their assembly and in their PE lessons.

If you your son/daughter is unable to get to the stadium by public transport then there will be a limited number of places available on the school mini bus, which will leave school at 8.15am on Thursday 11th July. Your son/daughter must speak to their form tutor to request a place on the school bus and places can only be offered if it is extremely difficult for a student to make their own way to the stadium. 

There are no catering facilities available at the Stadium so you will need to provide your son/daughter with a packed lunch and drinks for the day. If your son/daughter is entitled to a free school meal then a packed lunch will be available for them on the day.

Due to the rental agreement of the sports stadium the day finishes at 2.30pm when your son/daughter will be dismissed from Allianz Park. Please note that due to child protection issues no parents will be allowed entrance to the stadium so all parents will be required to wait outside the stadium. Parking is available at the stadium if required.

If you require any further information relating to the day please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. J. Robertson

Head of Physical Education Faculty
