Our Deputy Headmaster, Steve Marshall-Taylor, and Housemaster of Ryle, Graham Kennedy are swimming the English Channel for MNDA. 

Our Deputy Headmaster Steve Marshall-Taylor and House Master of Ryle Graham Kennedy are setting off at 3am on Sunday night from a beach near Dover, aiming to swim the Channel and arrive in France sometime late Monday afternoon/evening.

Following the recent diagnosis of a member of staff, the College community has been working tirelessly to raise awareness about Motor Neuron Disease and raise funds for the MND Association, which focuses on MND care, research and campaigning.

If you would like to follow their progress, the following links should work, depending on the reception in the middle of the Channel!
