The Hall School from Belsize Park won the London Schools Cup for the dual slalom at a race event held at Welwyn’s dry slope.

The team of Luke Egerton, Andrew Smith, Michael Smith and Max Fairfull were the rank outsiders as the youngest and most inexperienced group – and, despite only being a prep school, they were facing senior schools in the competition.

Nonetheless, The Hall came second in the dual slalom race. And, as the highest-placed team from the capital, they secured silverware, taking home the London Schools Cup.
