Pupils gave their best in events including long jump, javelin and 100m at the West London Disability Athletics event, run with the help of students from Uxbridge College.

Around 125 children took part in the events at the Hillingdon Athletics Stadium in Uxbridge, hosted by Hillingdon Council.

Students on the BTEC National Certificate in Sport came along to help steward the athletics event which involved eight schools, including three from Hillingdon - Meadow High School, Pield Heath and Hillingdon Manor - and the rest from Harrow, Hammersmith and Fulham, Brent and Hounslow.

Two competitions were held at the event on 10 May, the first for children with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD) and the other for those with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD).

Faye Nichols, Sports Science Lecturer at Uxbridge College, said: "Being part of the community is what Uxbridge College is all about, and while everyone is focused on doing well academically, there is more to studying here than that. Taking part in events such as these, our students get a chance to use the teamwork and communication skills which are a fundamental part of what they learn - and it is great fun too!"

Paul Archbold, Sports Development Officer for Hillingdon Council, said: "Hillingdon Council is delighted to have hosted this event again, which is designed to harness the enthusiasm of our young people and make sport a healthy habit of a lifetime. We would like to thank everyone who took part - our helpers from Uxbridge College were responsible and supportive and helped make the day a real success."

Winners were:

Overall winner - Shaftesbury High, Harrow
MLD - Meadow High School of Hillingdon
SLD - Marjory Kinnon School of Hounslow.
