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.”

The school has also invested in upgrading the pitch’s security with a robust new boundary fence and 24 hour CCTV surveillance system designed to protect the site.

Anyone interested in booking a pitch should call 020 8455114.
