About the event

The annual House Cross Country and Tug of War competition takes place at Rykneld Sports Centre, our dedicated sports facility.

It’s a tense morning as the four Houses compete against one another to win one (or more) of the four events:

  • Junior School Cross Country
  • Senior School Cross Country
  • Junior School Tug of War
  • Senior School Tug of War

All pupils take part and we welcome all parents to stay and watch as the competition unfolds.

  • Refreshments, bacon rolls and vegetarian sausages are on sale throughout the event, provided by the PTA.
  • Free parking is available onsite. If you are just dropping off, please do so on Prince Charles Avenue, before turning in to Merton Drive, in order to avoid congestion. Thankyou.
  • Parents are responsible for their children throughout the event.


We encourage you to capture photographs or film of your child at this event, but please don’t take pictures of pupils other than your own child (except as part of a group shot) without the permission of that pupil’s parents.  

Our school photographer will also be taking general photographs of the event which will be uploaded to the website afterwards. If you do not wish to be included, please make yourself known to the photographer.
