Sheffield Schools take National Orienteering Titles
Wow – what a day! More than 60 Sheffield School pupils travelled to Black Park near Slough on Sunday 17th November and took 26 podium positions across the whole school, age class team and individual competitions at the British Schools Champs!
In the whole school competitions High Storrs lifted the trophy in the large secondary schools competition for the first time while in the primay competition there was a reversal of last year's positions with Hunters Bar taking the top spot with Nether Green in 2nd place.
In the primary age team competitions Hunters Bar won the year 6 girls' trophy while Hallam took 2nd place in the year 5 boys competition. In the secondary team categories, High Storrs took the national title in the year 8, 9 and 10 boys classes and girls' year 12, while the girls in Y8 took 3rd.
