Lauren Duke, William Brinkman, Sophie Roberts and Maddie Weston were our Year 6 pupils who represented Spratton Hall at the annual Prep School �On the Buzzer� challenge at Uppingham School this year.

It was a hard fought contest with wide ranging questions from �what is the centre of an atom?� to �how many rowers in the Cambridge/Oxford boat race?�. The Spratton Hall pupils rose to the challenge, knowing the answers to �what is another word for zucchini?� and �how many pieces do you start with on a backgammon set?� amongst many others and beat off competition from Beeston Hall, St Hugh�s and Witham Hall to name but a few. The final was against Aldwickbury �B� team who we had lost to in earlier rounds. It came down to the last two questions with Spratton winning the overall �On the Buzzer� cup and a copy each of the 2013 Guinness Book of Records.
