Sporting spirits were high last week as all six Houses at Downside School competed in the ever-popular annual Inter-House Athletics.

The School decamped up to the athletics track and field, complete with music and refreshments, to compete in a variety of events including javelin, high jump, shot put and running.

The standard of the performances was excellent; pupils were determined but competed against each other with good grace, as is the typical Downside way. Overall winners for the boys was Roberts and, for the girls, Isabella.  

Our thanks go to everyone who was involved in organising the event.
