OPEN DAYS & NEWS - EATON HOUSE SCHOOLS

Conquering the Three Peaks in 24 hours

From June 27th to June 28th of this year, 19 Eaton House The Manor Prep boys completed the incredible Three Peaks Challenge, which was to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – in 24 hours.

The boys arrived in Glasgow accompanied by a number of staff members and a trained expedition medic. They had been training hard for months and were properly prepared and ready to begin the ascent of Ben Nevis at 5pm. It was a challenging climb in sweltering heat as the base of Ben Nevis was 36 degrees! At 10pm they finished Ben Nevis and started the 6 hour drive to Scafell Pike, sleeping on the way. They started that climb at an eerie 4am, finishing just after dawn broke. They then headed to Snowdon, where they started climbing at 1pm and reached the summit at 5pm. ‘The best moment was when our group reached the top of Snowdon,’ said  Edward, a Year 8 pupil. ‘Because there was a massive sense of achievement in thinking that we had completed it in 24 hours. The scariest moment was  when we decided not to take the path down Ben Nevis but to scramble our way straight down the mountain!”’

 

‘They did it in style,’ said the Headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Prep, Mrs Sarah Segrave. ‘And they did it in 24 hours, with every boy making it up every peak, showing good humour and toughness along the way. Eaton House The Manor Prep boys don’t do anything by halves.”’ The whole  event was for charity and raised £11,243 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity.
