As well as having lots of fun competing in the challenges, we also raised £830 for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, so many thanks to all of you who so kindly donated to this worthy cause which is dedicated to creating a fairer society for all.

Year 7 and the Parents/Carers categories had the highest amount of entries throughout the week – so a big thank you to all of the parents/carers/relatives for also getting involved! And of course, huge congratulations to Smyth House for their victory in the overall event!
