Students in Hill House, which is one of our Senior Girls’ Boarding Houses, made the most of Sunday’s (September 10th’s) sunny weather by heading to Cambridge for some punting and sightseeing!

Year 13 student, Eliza Suiter, who took part in the trip, said: “We all travelled to Cambridge via train, chatting with new people who we had not really had the opportunity to get to know well, due to the busy first week back at school. For some of the girls and Mrs Pentecost, our new Resident Tutor, it was their first time in Cambridge, so walking through the city centre was a nice way to see the local area.

“As we embarked on the punts, we all tried to remain balanced as most of us feared falling in the water, however no-one did, luckily! As we drifted along the River Cam, our guide told us all about the rich and interesting history of Cambridge, and the stunning architecture as we went past. There was such a tranquil atmosphere along the river, and learning about the fascinating history was so interesting. Everyone had a wonderful and peaceful Sunday, which was a well-deserved break from the hectic first week of term.

“Thank you to Mrs Jackson, Mrs Pentecost, and Miss Gill for such a lovely day!”
