Boys, staff and parents came out in force to support our annual Inter-House Tug of War contest. Competition is always fierce at this traditional trial of physical and mental strength, and this year was no different.

Conditions underfoot were very slippery but St Cuthbert’s / Phillpotts managed to stay upright in the mud and were the victors for the second year running. Paulo Pontine/Redburn were runners up in the hard-fought battle.

A huge thank you to the Parents’ Guild who organised the event and purchased the t-shirts for the boys taking part. Special thanks, too, to OB Tom Wootton (78-87) who returned to umpire the event and provided the cup, which he presented to the winners.
