Cross Country

County Cross-Country Championships

Congratulations to Tom, Jack, Holly, Eivie, Yasmin, Deji, Calum, Lucia, Jack, Megan and Jess, whom having excelled in the Croydon District Championships, qualified to compete in the County Championships held in Priory Park, Reigate, last Saturday.

They braved very muddy conditions, holding their own against the best runners in the county, to achieve commendable results.

Impressive top-twenty finishes from both Tom, in the Junior Boys’ race, and Jack, in the  Intermediate Boys race, qualify both pupils to represent Surrey in their respective Inter-county meetings in a fortnight’s time. Well done to both of them!

Annual House Cross Country Event

Wednesday this week the annual house cross country event was held through our grounds. Almost every pupil and some members of staff ran in races ranging from 2.2km to 4.7km.

With the weather varying from bright sunshine to hail and possibly snow, it really was 4 seasons in a day and that caused a few runners some issues.

The winners were:

Senior Boys             Rhys

Senior Girls             Abi

Intermediate Boys   Jack

Intermediate Girls    Megan

Junior Boys             James

Junior Girls             Lucia

Well done!
