Hartfield House - House Champions 2023Posted on: July 18th 2023
Congratulations go to Hartfield House who, after taking the lead in the Championship in October, continued to steadily accumulate house points over the spring and summer terms and emerged House Champions after the thrilling final Championship event - Sports Day. This is an incredible achievement to have held on to the lead for so long! The Championship ended incredibly close with just over 600 points separating the winners and runners-up. Well done to Pemberley, who finished last year in fourth place, who are runners up this year. Commiserations to Northanger, who were defending champions, whose late spurt took them off fourth place at the expense of Mansfield, who I am sure will bounce back next year.
Well done to everyone who sent in a picture of their pet, sang their heart out to Backstreet Boys, took part in the army days, in extra-curricular clubs, Science Week competitions, Maths Pi Day, built an island in RS, guessed the correct flag in geography and every other competition we had - every point counted and it went right down to the wire. The House Championship has been fun and rewarding to organise and I would like to thank our student leaders - House Captains, Vice House Captains and House Representatives - who have been instrumental in helping to organise events and
encourage students to embrace the competitions with enthusiasm. I hope that you have enjoyed it as well.
So, looking ahead to next year, can Pemberley go one step further and win the championship, can Northanger reclaim the crown or could Mansfield go all the way from fourth place one year to champions the next? Will Hartfield become the first House to win the competition back to back? We go again in September!
