Olympic gold medallists Sir Chris Hoy and Jonathan Edwards joined more than 150 pupils from five London schools split into seven different teams, each representing one of the Olympic or Paralympic values - respect, excellence, friendship and courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
With just over a year to go until London 2012, Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week is using the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire pupils to do more sport and physical activity, while also encouraging them to aim for personal bests.
Sir Chris and Edwards joined in with the schoolchildren as they competed in events such as table tennis, badminton, rowing, goalball, boccia, trampolining and sitting volleyball.
Lloyds TSB ambassador, Sir Chris, said: "School sport is something I am very passionate about and it was great to see such a fantastic school at Southfields Community College get involved.
"I was lucky in that at my school there were lots of sporting opportunities but that is not the same across all schools and that is what Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week is all about.
