Saturday 4th November saw a fabulous afternoon for the House Steeplechase.

All pupils in the Prep School, from Year 3 to Year 8 ran in the infamous annual House Steeplechase, with conditions being dry, clear, crisp and soft underfoot. This year we had to alter the course slightly, as the addition of our marvellous astro-turf has meant a change to the start and finish of the course.  A huge well done to the pupils for their determination and resilience, thoroughly deserving their medals for attempting the water, let alone for completing the course.

The results were as follows:


Juniors (Years 3 and 4)

Girls - 1st place – Ruby B (Churchills); 2nd place – Isabella M (Churchills); 3rd place – Holly K (Churchills)

Boys – 1st place – Zach C (Churchills); 2nd place – Bruno F (Churchills); 3rd place – Ben W (Churchills)


Middles (Years 5 and 6)

Girls – 1st place – Ava B (Wellingtons); 2nd place – Imogen N (Pitts); 3rd place – Frankie C (Nelsons)

Boys – 1st place – Freddie H (Nelsons); 2nd place – Charlie B (Churchills); 3rd place – Charles W (Churchills)


Seniors (Years 7 and 8)

Girls – 1st place – Amelia E (Churchills) ; 2nd place – Isobel E (Churchills); 3rd place – Niamh OB (Pitts)

Boys – 1st place – Rufus L (Wellingtons); 2nd place – Thomas H (Nelsons); 3rd place – Joshua N (Nelsons)
