As the House Competition gathers pace, one of the autumn term regulars – House Orienteering - took place for Years 7 and 8. The event, in the penultimate week of October, entails the junior years frantically running around the school hunting for checkpoints by way of a series of geographical clues. This perhaps proved more difficult for the Year 7s than the knowledgeable Year 8s but was a good way for them to get to know the school.

In the end, it was a great win for Pearson with them coming top place in both years. In Year 7 Rayner came in second, whereas in Year 8 it was Newman. It was a couple of lunch times of frenetic map reading and clue deciphering and all boys that took part should be very proud of themselves.
