A High Peak school has seen a clutch of youngsters impress at a regional cross-country event.

Chapel-en-le Frith High School’s under-13 cross-country teams travelled to Boston recently to represent Derbyshire in the Regional final of the English Schools’ Cup competition.

The boys’ team just missed out on progressing to the national finals despite a highly impressive fifth-placed finish, whilst the girls’ team, led by Jasmine Palmer, also impressed.

The teams will now turn their attention to the area and county competitions.
