Sports Day is on 19th July 2019 and we would love you to join us to enjoy this Community event. Arrivals will be from 9.45-10.15am, with the first race at 10.30am. The event will be finished by 12.40pm, when students will be dismissed to begin their summer break.


Again this year it is an all ticket event for safeguarding reasons. If you would like to attend you must apply for a ticket. There are no restrictions on numbers but the ticket can only be used against the person attending.

Please email admin@hdhs.school giving the subject title as “Sports Day tickets”, stating the number of tickets you would like and the names of each person attending so that the names can be checked against the list we have on the day. This includes any children attending, except for HDHS students.

On the day each Community will have a stand where you can purchase small items with cash. This money will all go straight to the chosen charity of the Communities .

Head of Windsor Learning Community
