Pupils from Oundle School’s Sidney Boys’ Boarding House took part in a relay swim, with the goal of swimming the width of the English Channel in support of WaterAid.
Forty-four pupils, drawn from every year group, swam over the course of the event, and together they achieved a remarkable total of 850 lengths or 25.2 miles.
