Inter-House Hope Simpson Ergo Challenge

Monday 9 December 2019

Easily the noisiest and most exhausting event of the year... 

The Hope Simpson Ergo Challenge sees teams of four from each House year group compete against each other to complete a set distance on a rowing maching in the fastest time. Rowers and non-rowers compete together for House glory!

Congratulations to all who rowed so valiantly - and in particular to the winners:

Third Form: Oldham’s Hall & The Grove

Fourth Form: School House & The Grove

Fifth Form: Rigg’s Hall & Moser’s Hall

Lower Sixth: Oldham’s Hall & The Grove

Upper Sixth: Churchill’s Hall & Mary Sidney Hall


The Overall Prizes where won by Oldham’s Hall (by 1 point ahead of Ingram’s Hall) and The Grove.

A special mention to The Grove’s Lower Sixth team (pictured below), who broke the record by 13 seconds.
