This week held the annual House Humanities event, with events running for both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
Each house powered through many gruelling rounds of difficult questions on topics in the fields of as Politics, History, Geography and Religion. The excitement was building as the questions got tougher and tougher, with brain-ticklers such as, 'Which country gets its name from a hat?' There were many house points up for grabs, and although most houses managed a position on the podium in one year group or another, Rayner seemed to fare best overall with first place in the Years 7 and 8 competition and second place in the Years 9 and 10 competition.
Everyone had a lot of fun and learned some interesting new facts: congratulations to Newman, Rayner and Holman as this year's joint victors.
