Heritage School Senior pupil running in independent school cross country competition

Cross Country Competitions Get Seniors Running

The goal of our Sports programme is to promote healthy, active living that continues into adult life, and running can be an excellent way to support both physical and mental well-being for people of all ages. This activity is built into the timetable in our Junior School with weekly cross country sessions, and a variety of competitions throughout the year provide further opportunities for pupils to run outside of school as well. 

On 6 December, twelve Senior pupils competed in the District Cross Country Championship at Netherhall School. Of the pupils who ran during that event, Emilie (Y10), Silas (Y10), and Sandy (Y9) also qualified for the County Cross Country Championships held at Priory Park, St Neots on 8th January. Although Silas was unable to run due to an injury, Emilie and Sandy ran very well in muddy and slippery conditions. A job well done to one and all for some super running and giving it their best. Next up will be the Regional ISA Cross Country Championships in February.
