Together, our girls have run nearly 500 miles in memory of the inimitable Captain Sir Tom Moore today. Girls right from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form joined in, racking up an impressive 1469 laps of our school cross country course.

The girls hope their challenge will raise awareness about the vital work the Captain Tom Foundation does.

On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal. His simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – inspired millions around the world.

Today would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday and to honour him, and his amazing achievements, our girls joined the thousands of people across the country taking on their own ‘100 challenge’.

The Captain Tom Foundation was set up to ensure Tom’s message of hope becomes a lasting legacy. It supports the NHS and causes which help combat loneliness and champion education and equality.
