Today marks the start of a challenge for pupils and staff as they race towards the team at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi.

Staff and pupils have one aim, to get to their sister school before pupils from Cranleigh Abu Dhabi get to the UK.

In total that’s a staggering 5488 kilometres to travel, so everyone at the prep is being encouraged to get their trainers on and get active. Every step counts!

Kilometres can be logged for: walking; running; swimming; fitness equipment; skateboarding – anything that makes them active.

Results are being logged on a special Strava group. Watch this space for updates.
