On Sunday the BMS senior squad travelled to Henley-on-Thames for a training day with Canford School and King’s Canterbury School, two schools that we have been competing closely with over this year.

Mr White, Mr Satchwill and I left Bedford what seems like an age ago, having driven the trailer some 1300 miles to get to Sabaudia. Although it is safe to say that everyone has reached that point where they stroll into breakfast resembling your typical Hollywood zombie, with vacant eyes and a fairly unnatural walk … Continue reading Camp is coming to an end…
