Healthy School

In March 2014 Woodlane High School was the first school in London to achieve the Healthy School's Gold Award!  We are currently in the process of renewing our status as well as working towards achieving a Silver Award with a focus on mental health.

The Healthy School’s London initiative is designed to respond to growing concerns over healthy weight in London and a need for more physical exercise and sport participation across all London boroughs. It is backed by the Mayor’s office.


Our aim is to help pupils make informed decisions, helping them to select healthy food & drink options and improve their fitness through exercise.

Our aim is to enable pupils to make healthy decisions regarding mental and sexual health.

We support this in the taught curriculum:

  • In food technology lessons and extra curricular cooking clubs

  • In PSCHE lessons, including sex education

  • In Science lessons and extra-curricular gardening clubs

  • In PE and extra-curricular sports clubs
