Congratulations to our Year 5 and 6 Cross Country team for coming 1st place in the GDST Cross Country Competition!
The team were very excited to board the bus ready for departure to Bromley. After a night's stay in a Premier Inn followed by a great breakfast the girls were ready to walk the course and start their race. Nerves hit in on the start line but these quickly disappeared as they set off among 138 competitors. Sophieheaded to the front of the pack with the rest keen to stay with her. After completing the muddy circuit Sophie headed for the finish line in 6th place with Erin not far behind and Hettie and Eleanor battling for position in the top 25. Jemima strode out to gain 43rd with Charlotte putting in a good sprint finish to see all the team back home in the top 45. This was a great effort from all. After playing some fun football games the results were announced with a tremendous first place for the Royal High School - just fantastic! I am so proud of all the girls.
