Henrys are making a name; ORIENTEERING.
A 68-strong squad of primary and secondary pupils travelled to Huddersfield for the British championships.
The senior school moved up from fifth last year to finish second behind defending champions Ulverston Victoria High School, who have dominated the event in recent years.
The year groups had even more success with the 6,7 and 9 girls all winning titles and the year 5 boys and 10 and 11 girls finishing second. The year 8 girls placed fourth.
Individually, Joanna Halliday shared the year 7 girls title for the second year running and Daniel Halliday won the bronze in the year 10 boys competition. King Henry also took the overall lower secondary (years 7-9) title at the national score championship and finished second in the upper secondary (10-13).
Joanna Halliday was again year 7 champion ahead of team-mate Chloe Bell, while Nadine Wright (year 8 girls) and Daniel Halliuday (year 10 boys) both finished third.
