At St George's, we have 21 Sports Leaders, all from Year 6.
Our Sports Leaders are role models to the rest of the school and are the children's voice for sport at St George's. They take an interest in what children think of sport at St George's and advise on what changes they would like to see.

On 1st October 2015, eight of our Sports Leaders took part in a Sports Leaders Conference at the Harrow Leisure Centre. The children explored all the different skills and qualities required to be a good leader and how to use these skills on the playground with other children. They also worked with students from Park High School, to learn and play new games, using simple equipment and easy rules. They then had the opportunity to create their own playground games and learn games from children in other Harrow schools. Some qualities that St George's Sports Leaders thought were important for their role were:
Setting a good example
Finding solutions to problems
Creating safe, fun, playground games
