This term Barrow took part in numerous activities all in support of fundraising money for the charity Ambitious about Autism. Mr Denman took on the 220 mile bike ride from Manchester to London in one day whilst the boys completed a range of activities to raise money for a worthy cause. From finishing an impressive 22 holes of golf, to a day full of car washing and a 22km run around Rutland Water, just over £1,000 was raised.


Hambleton girls made the most of the sunny mornings with a spirited rounders tournament against Gunthorpe House. They were also treated to performances by the talented Simi and Sophie in the Big Band Concert.
