Staff and pupils at a school in Cricklewood are celebrating the completion of two new state-of-the-art all-weather sports pitches.
The surfaces, now open for bookings at Whitefield School in Claremont Road, are capable of hosting international-standard hockey matches, plus other sports including football, tennis and netball.
Martin Lavelle, the school’s head teacher, said: “After a year of solid planning, it’s fantastic to be able to provide our students with such a high quality surface capable of hosting a range of different sports.
“We are also proud to offer pitch time to the wider community that Whitefield serves.
“We continue to enjoy a strong relationship with West Hampstead Hockey Club and hope that these fantastic new facilities enable other community groups to forge new, ongoing relationships with us.”
