I know that 8 out of the HWSF 25 were Pupil Premium. Historically I guess 1% of Oxbridge offers have been for PP students - don't know the exact figures.

Harris Academy Merton Students Become Wimbledon Ball Boys and Ball Girls

Six Harris Academy Merton students will have the privilege of being ball boys and ball girls at the 2017 Wimbledon tennis championships starting this week.

To get through, students had to take part in school trials last September, followed by extensive training with a Wimbledon instructor and Merton Academy PE staff. They then had to pass Wimbledon’s process of fitness and skills tests which all students are graded on before they start on-court work.

Sam Woolley, PE teacher at Harris Academy Merton, said:

“Being a ball boy or girl at Wimbledon is demanding and requires young people who are really focused and responsive. As well as fitness and skills, we teach our students the importance of a positive attitude and good presentation. We want our students to be as calm and well prepared as possible – tennis fans the world over will be watching!

 “Three of those selected this year had been lucky enough to be involved last year as well. Their experience was very valuable in helping to build the confidence of the other students who were new to this exciting and slightly daunting opportunity. We’re really proud of them all.”

Aisha Samad, Principal of Harris Academy Merton, said:


“The students who have been selected to be ball girls and ball boys are a credit to our school, demonstrating real maturity and commitment. We are delighted that they have had this wonderful opportunity, and that they have risen to the challenge with such enthusiasm.


“We look forward to starting the next round of trials when we come back after the summer holidays. I know there are many more students who would also love their chance to experience the excitement of Wimbledon in such an immediate way.”
