House Engineering competition

Girls showed an impressive display of engineering prowess in the House Engineering Tower Building competition.

The tension was palpable as the five participating houses battled it out, each hoping to emerge victorious and claim the coveted title of Tower Building Champions.

In a stunning display of skill and determination, Ridley came out on top, their towering structure standing tall at an impressive 69cm and earning them eight points. But Blenheim wasn’t far behind, with their own tower measuring 68cm and earning them a well-deserved seven points.

Ford put up a valiant effort, their tower reaching an impressive height of 64cm and earning them six points. Meanwhile, Oxen’s tower stood at a respectable 55cm, earning them five points.

Cranmer’s tower may not have reached the heights of their competitors, but it still stood at an impressive 31cm, earning them four points for their efforts.

Let’s not forget the other houses who participated in this thrilling competition – Latimer, Isis, Cherwell, Windrush, and Evenlode. Though they may not have earned as many points as the top five houses, their towers were still a testament to their ingenuity and creativity.

Congratulations to all the participants in the House Engineering Tower Building competition for demonstrating true engineering excellence!

Head of Competitive Houses Mr David Cunningham said: “Seeing the students’ creativity and resourcefulness on display was truly inspiring. It’s amazing what they can achieve when they put their minds to it. Well done to all the houses for their impressive efforts!”
