Inter-House Sports Day: Results, Records, & Media Memories

Inter-House Sports Day – view the full Flickr photo collection

Thursday 10 February 2022: This year’s edition of the Inter-House Sports Day saw a return to full school and spectator support after the Covid-19 restrictions of 2021. A magnificent day of spirited competition in the annual chase for house points toward the Friedlander Shield competition brought new records and old traditions to the Silverhurst Fields – from the Littlewood House march to start the event to the staff vs students relay at the end. All under a clear, summer sky in perfect wind-free conditions. 

Thanks to all staff for their assistance on the day, families and friends for joining in support, and well done to all athletes. View the full collection of photo memories on our Flickr channel.

Vice-Principal, Mr Cliff Hull, wrote in the weekly newsletter of Friday 11 February:

Our Inter-house Sports Day, a flagship event on our school calendar. Aside from the sparkling performances themselves, it was another priceless opportunity for our boys to forge memories and to continue to build lasting relationships amongst each other, albeit under the guise of healthy inter-house rivalry.

Whilst the sporting life of the school has flourished, we eagerly await the return of our fully-fledged cultural and service programme within the next couple of weeks. Please do stay tuned to these pages as these pillars flicker, and hopefully explode, into life.
