Children at Lovelace School have celebrated a successful year in sport after getting into the London Youth Games.

Students at the Chessington school beat schools from across the borough to win a place at the London Youth Games playing basketball, netball and cricket in recent weeks.

Surrey Comet:

The school also holds first place in the borough for participation in sports competitions.

Lisa Cropley, sports leader at Lovelace, said: “We are massively proud of all the children involved. We hope it leads them to a life of sport - we want to engage children and make them love sport.

"To qualify for the London Youth Games, it is a massive achievement and something we have never done before."

Other clubs at the school include tennis, rounders, rugby and swimming as well as the running club.
