Hilden Grange School

Success at Kent Schools’ Cross-Country Championships

Hilden Grange took 24 pupils across seven teams to the Kent Junior Schools’ Cross-Country Championships at Detling Showground and came away with individual Gold and Silver medals, a team Bronze and a team Gold!

All pupils performed strongly and finished in the top half of their respective races, with a Gold and Silver in the Year 5 boys race.  Two other members of the team also performed extremely well, earning Hilden Grange our 12th team title in five years.  It was the third year in a row that this group of boys have won the county title.  There was also a spot on the podium for Year 4 Boys team who finished third.

The two Year 5 boys who won Gold and Silver also earnt selection for Kent and will represent the school and the county at the National Championships in Leicestershire in March.  Well done to all our runners for a great effort.
