Braving the Elements in House Cross Country

In challenging conditions, students worked hard to compete in the annual House Cross Country Competition with great results for all the Houses.

From Monday 15 - Friday 19 January we enjoyed our annual House Cross Country week. On Monday, the Upper 3 and Lower 4 students kicked off the competition in wet and muddy conditions, therefore needing a change of course on the day. The students worked extremely hard despite the challenge and produced an impressive display. The positions were as follows:


Boys (1) J. Valkenburg (Whittington); (2) F. Margrave (Hale); (3) T. Heath (Gresham).

Girls: (1) K. Bunyard W; (2) I. McManus H; (3) C. Royle G.


On Tuesday, it was the turn of the Upper 2 and Lower 3 students in much better conditions. The positions were as follows:


Boys (1) P. Moilliet W; (2) G. Bugra H; (3) B. Carr G.

Girls: (1) A. Turner G; (2) Alice Cook H; (3) A. McEwan G.


On Thursday, the Upper 4 and Lower 5 students took to the field. The positions were as follows:


Boys (1) T. Cheshire H; (2) J. Freeman H; (3) J. Boros W.


Finally on Friday, the Form 1 and Lower 2 boys and girls ran in very cold conditions and worked incredibly hard. The positions were as follows:


Boys (1) G. Fraser-Kerr W; (2) B. Sullivan H; (3) H. Nathan G.

Girls: (1) R. Waine G; (2) E. Hearn; (3) L. Manley.


There were some fantastic individual performances throughout the week and the Sports Department are proud of all the runners' efforts. Scores will be announced in House assemblies.
