Broughton sweep the field

For the first time in many years, Broughton has won QE’s House competition. Leicester and Underne tied for second place, followed by Stapylton, Harrisons’ and Pearce in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.

“I congratulate Broughton on their victory” said Martin Bassett-Jones, House Co-ordinator. “They have shown consistent performance this year across the field of events, leaving a clear gap to second place.”

The cup was presented by the Headmaster, Neil Enright, at a special ceremony to outgoing House Captain Ife Adepegba and Deputy House Captain Abhishek Mukherjee, who together oversaw the victory for Broughton. The assembly was entertained by Year 8 Broughton boy John Tan, who plays the jazz saxophone.

""The House Cup is an annual competition in which boys accumulate points for their house over the year. The competition incorporates a broad range of disciplines, including not only academic attainment but other activities and events as diverse as music, sports, merits, charitable work, quizzes, debating and chess.

“It is very rewarding to observe the enthusiasm boys have for their houses and the efforts they make to accumulate points. This year’s competition for the minor placing was particularly close, with Stapylton in fourth place only 3 points behind Underne and Leicester,” added Mr Bassett-Jones.
