Cross country runs show Terrington Hall values in action.
Terrington teamwork ensured our cross country runners put in extremely impressive performances at the first cross country runs of the season.
Lent term began with a series of House cross country competitions for Prep School children (Years 3-8), who ran various distances around the school’s own cross country course. We were most impressed by the way older pupils who had finished their runs went back to help those who were struggling.
Our best Under 11 and Under 13 runners travelled to Sedbergh School in Cumbria to compete in its legendary cross country the Rawthey Run. They battled the frozen and rutted hills alongside pupils from 15 other schools on a bitterly cold but thankfully sunny day. Our children cheered on each other and also encouraged runners from other schools in a great display of sportsmanship.
Our teams also travelled to Giggleswick School to compete in the Catteral Hall Shield Cross Country. The course was soft, heavy and muddy and there were several heavy showers but everyone put in a tremendous effort, despite the odd lost shoe!
Once again, the children encouraged each other and kept smiling throughout. We’re very proud of our cross country teams for demonstrating the Terrington Hall values of Courage, Kindness, Confidence and Growth at every step of the way.
It’s a friendly, vibrant school with lots of opportunities for development both inside and outside the classroom.
