Three Lower Sixth Form students were soaked to the skin for the majority of their recent sponsored walk of the Sussex Border Path, which raised over £900 for Greenpeace.

George Ogden, Liam Writer and Yash Shetty encountered electric fences and barbed wire, as well as horses and cows, as they endured almost 42 hours of walking 175 km.

“It was tougher than I could have imagined and we could not have picked a week with worse weather!  But, we made it,” said George.

The boys were the recipients of an FLR Smith travel award, a fund left in memory of a former student to promote independent, extra-curricular travel for a variety of good causes and motives.

Well done, boys!
