Project by Ada Lovelace Parent Teacher Association


The Ada Lovelace Parent Teacher Association are pleased to announce that we have a team of staff and parent runners entering the Ealing Half Marathon on Sunday 24th September 2023 to help us raise funds for a new AstroTurf Pitch at the Ada Lovelace CofE High School in Ealing. 


Ada Lovelace is a diverse 11-18 Comprehensive school with approximately 860 children from the local community on roll currently, raising to 1350 by 2024/2025. Our building was opened to the children in September 2020 and houses modern, well-equipped classrooms and large spaces to gather as a community.  

Sport is an integral part of the school curriculum and our sport facilities offer opportunities for the students and community to benefit from and engage in wider learning activities. Students are encouraged to participate in outdoor sports and learning, to develop vital team-building and cooperation skills as well as for their own future health and mental well-being. A sports hall, MUGA (outdoor multi-use games area) and a small grass pitch exist currently on the site and are used daily for sports and play by the students as well as being available to the local community for hire. 

However, our grass pitch is inadequate for the many pairs of trainers and boots, which land on it every day. It becomes very muddy and slippery when wet and this increases the risk of injury for the students. Consequently it is often out of action, leaving the students with no suitable space for field sports. 


We are fundraising alongside the school to replace the grass area with a new safer Astro-Turf Pitch, so that our students have the opportunity to play outdoor sport all year round in any weather. This will greatly impact the students' health and well-being and provide opportunities for further cooperation with local sports clubs and the local community


We have an amazing group of parents and staff from Ada Lovelace running the Ealing Half Marathon on Sunday 24th September 2023 to raise funds for this much-needed AstroTurf Pitch. Staff members Josie, Nat, Hannah, Laz and Liz and parents Milton, Dimitris, Marianne, Soledad, Emma, Diane, Meys, Sally, Gen, Jamie and Sasha have been training hard and need lots of support from you to make their efforts worthwhile.

Congratulations to our amazing running team and the fantastic supporters we had cheering them on! It was a great day and we are proud of the amount we have raised towards the school AstroTurf Pitch. Thank you to everyone who sponsored our team and is helping us build our Ada Lovelace school community step by step. 

Thank you,
