Annual Pancake Races
The annual inter-house Pancake Race on Shrove Tuesday was a close and keenly contested race. The kitchen staff had produced 10 pancakes to flip at various points on the course with 5 frying pans borrowed from the boarding house kitchens. The contestants and spectators were eager for the race to start. The weather held firm with the odd rain shower before the commencement. The houses were all fully represented with students from all key stages warmed up and raring to go. The race was fast and furious with the lead changing on each lap. The favourites, Austen House, started well, but the winners were Newton who no-one expected to win. Well done to all who competed in this fun annual event.
