Today we hosted the annual Highfields Cross Country meet, a highlight of our sporting calendar. Over 380 children from 13 schools joined us to compete in their teams of U9 and U11 girls and boys. Our visitors travelled from far and wide, and included Nottingham High School and Nottingham Girls’ High School, Ranby House, Burton Hathow, Lincoln Minster, Grantham Prep, Lowes Wong (Southwell), Abbotsholme (Derbyshire), St George’s (Boston), Wellow House, Plumtree School and Salterford House. Organised by Head of Boys’ Games Mr Rhys Lewis and Head of Girls’ Games Mrs Alison Turner this was a great turnout and we had some worthy winners both in the team races and individually. Thank you to all the Highfields staff and especially Chef Ling for his very welcome refreshments including fabulous hotdogs for the competitors and some much needed hot soup for the spectators!
