Across the school’s six houses, the 48 house captains will be rallying their fellow pupils to sign up for the celebration night walk and raise as much money as possible for the hospice, with the house that raises the most being the winner.

Registration is now open for the popular charity walk on Saturday, June 25, which starts and finishes at the school. This year the night walk will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a neon party theme as the course returns to its original route through Hemel and Berkhamsted.

Head of house events John Mitchell said: “Adopting the Midnight Walk as our house charity event is such an exciting development and we hope to have as many students as possible participating in the walk to raise money for the hospice as part of the inter-house competition.

“It is very special to the school that the Midnight Walk start and finish is held in our grounds, to show our support of such an exceptional local charity that provides incredible care to so many people in our community. For the 10th anniversary the whole school are looking forward to celebrating with the hospice.”
