Over 1,000 students from 50 schools tackled the muddy course in fields and woods around the two lakes.

And the year seven girls’ team of Stephanie Okoro, Ruby Naughton, Kiera Flannery and Freya Long won their race, with the B team 12th and C team 26th.

Frank Lewis, Harry Lewis, Zach Bridges and Noel Moore combined as the year seven boys were also crowned champions, with their B team sixth and C team 19th.

And Natalie Sewell won the year eight girls’ race to ahead of runner-up Chloe Rand, Chloe Brand and Holly Bradley as Coopers claimed another team title. The B team finished third and the C team 19th.

The year eight boys were third and the B team 16th.

No fewer than 13 Coopers pupils finished inside the top 16 in their races to earn a spot on the Essex team for the Inter-Counties race.

Assistant head Mark Duncan said: “It was a superb team performance that is testament to the many hours of training the student put in at school training and also at their local athletics clubs.

“We still have some more races to strive for this season with the South East Championships taking place at Harrow School and the St Edward’s School (Oxford) Prep School Relays event.”
