Surrey Cross Country Finals

Year 6 Girls compete in Surrey Cross Country Finals!

On Saturday 21 January four girls from Year 6 represented the school at the Surrey Cross Country Finals held at Reigate Priory. Despite some horrendous traffic delays (and an unfortunate late sickness withdrawal of our 5th team member), all made it to the start line in time…just…and all four ran with great determination from start to finish. Over 160 girls took part in the race and at present we are still awaiting the official results, although Darby Begley-Jones finished in the top 20 and has therefore been invited to join the Surrey Elite Athletes training squad. This is a marvellous achievement for Darby and her fantastic team mates who ran in support – cross country is a team event and we celebrate success together. Miss Blair & Mr Tindall were extremely proud of the whole team and we look forward to continued success at the District Cross Country Championships in March.
