Northampton High raise money for Sport Relief

We were delighted to team up with our fellow GDST schools to take part in the ‘Pole to Pole’ challenge!


As a school, we have Swam and Rowed 395km and Ran, Walked and Cycled 2464km covering a staggering 2859km in total contributing to the GDST Pole to Pole challenge all in aid of Sport Relief!

Throughout the week, students have participated in a number of activities and we provided opportunities for everyone to swim and of course cheer on the staff and sixth form as they rowed the final stretch to reach our target distance. The Seniors reached 20.5km and have narrowly lost out to the U4/L5s who reached 20.65km in their rowing distances during games afternoons – Well done to everyone involved.

A massive thank you and congratulations to the following students for their outstanding contributions: Rebecca L and Anna J who swam the furthest distance during year U4/L5 games (5.7km); Amelia S and Ruby H for rowing all afternoon reaching 17km between them, and Georgie FW and Nisheeta K for their amazing support throughout the day on Friday.

Thanks to all staff and gym members who contributed outside of school throughout the week. It has been a great way to bring everyone together and raise money for a great cause.
