The Watford and Hertsmere School Sports Partnership was established in 2004 and is hosted at Queens' School, Bushey. We are a partnership of Infant, Primary, Secondary and Special Schools across Watford, Bushey, Borehamwood and Potters Bar. ​Our partnership of 72 schools covers from West Watford over to Borehamwood and we are the largest and most spread out Partnership within Hertfordshire.


A team of core staff work within the Partnership​, working together to increase participation in High Quality Physical Education and School Sport. We offer a range of CPD opportunities to School staff and provide a link to Sports Clubs within the local community.


We provide opportunities for young people within our partnership of schools to access sporting competitions and leadership opportunities. The Herts School Games provides a focus to our competition programme, but we also identify localised need through our Partnership based competitions.


We work with a number of different sporting bodies, especially the Youth Sports Trust and the School Games Programme. We work closely with the other School Sports Partnerships in Hertfordshire and the County Sports Partnership to provide a coordinated approach to school sport and competition.
