Scarret, our annual Inter-House Cross Country Championships, took place on a glorious autumn afternoon. This is the first in a popular series of House competitions that are scheduled throughout the year and ground conditions and temperatures were perfect for running, allowing for fast and closely contested races.
The afternoon got under way with the inaugural KS1 participation run which was requested by the pupils themselves. It was brilliant to see all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and 2 participating and running every step of the 765m course.
The combined Year 3 & 4 race was contested over a 1500m course and included a long and testing climb in the middle section.
Year 5 & 6 pupils covered over 1900m in their race with a course that featured some steep and challenging hills in the Ghyll Field.
Congratulations to Whernside House who won the overall championships this year and to all our pupils for participating and for the support and encouragement you gave each other.
