Werburgh wins the House Competition!

The House Song competition seems quite some time ago now, with Dutton’s rendition of ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ stealing the show and bagging Dutton plenty of points early on.

In the Michaelmas term, all year groups took part in the MFL competition, with Shells did the cross-country and Shells and Thirds took on the House Geography Challenge. Some students engaged in the biological drawing competition, creative writing challenge and did a garland review for house points.

In the Lent Term Thirds and Fourths took several attempts to take part in cross-country, but finally did it. Shells competed in swimming and netball, and Sixth Formers completed the Lower Sixth LifeSkills Challenge. The Fourths competed in house netball and there was the option to compete in the fantastic senior debating competition. A new competition this year included all tutor groups taking part in Big Quiz Week, which involved an engineering challenge, maths challenge, a book award kahoot, and geography challenge. The Annual House Book Quiz was also entered fully with Grosvenor taking the crown.

During Remote Learning the competitions continued – a whole school challenge day before the Easter break, charity bingo challenges during this half term, a creative writing competition, PT challenge and Lower Sixth essay competition. As well as the usual contribution that credits add to the House Competition I think we can all agree this term has been busy.

The final results in the third House Competition are as followed.

8th place: Lester Smith – 2130 points

7th place: Walsh – 2498 points

6th place: Fox – 2867 points

5th: Gladstone – 2911 points

Congratulations, Werburgh!
