House Cross Country

House Cross Country

The Lent term has got off to a flying start with House Competitions taking centre stage.  This term’s competitions include Climbing, Badminton, Debating, Chess, Drill, Speech & Drama, Art, Photography, Netball and Hockey.

To start things off, our pupils took part in the House Cross Country on Saturday morning, running either the ‘All Comers Race’, a steady route for all abilities or the elite, more challenging route – ‘the DRG’ so named after our member of staff Mr Grant along-time teacher and fell runner who was a key part of our adventure team back in the day. Mr Grant also took part in the race whilst celebrating his birthday on Saturday.

With determination, resilience against the cold and motivation generated by cheering supporters, all runners performed extremely well, with lots of faces still smiling as they crossed the finish line!

Congratulations to Efanna and Will for taking first place in the boys and girls DRG races and Joe and Frankie who won the All-Comers Race. Tom and Anna won the Away race.  Orchard and de Winton House and Wye House (in the Prep School) took the overall wins on the day, congratulations to all involved for a successful event.
