South West London hub
Our South West London hub is lead by Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) school, an independent day school for girls aged 7-18 in south west London.
LEH is a place of curiosity and adventure, where enthusiastic and bright young minds are encouraged to be bold and brave in their thoughts, actions and dreams for the future. Pupils are given the encouragement, inspiration, and opportunity to experience new things, to take risks, and to innovate as they grow and discover more about themselves.
Why train in South West London?
LEH is home to a beautiful 24-acre campus, situated in Hampton, with four lacrosse pitches, eight outdoor netball courts, six grass tennis courts and a croquet lawn. Inside, there’s a massive sports hall, an activity studio and an indoor swimming pool.
With vibrant areas such as Richmond, Wimbledon and Kingston close by, southwest London is only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of central London.
