The Haddock Cup

We were delighted to welcome Feltonfleet School to Perrott Hill last week for a fantastic two days of rugby, hockey and the inaugural running of The Haddock Cup to celebrate the strong bond between our two schools. In 1940, during the Second World War, Feltonfleet School was evacuated to North Perrott Manor, where they stayed for the duration of the war – returning from Somerset to Surrey in early 1945 (with one of the Feltonfleet staff, Bill Grundy, staying at the manor and Perrott Hill Prep School was formed). One of the Feltonfleet pupils was John Haddock, a distinguished cross country runner who remains very much part of the Perrott Hill family, and we are delighted that he has given his name to the Cup which will be contested by the two schools each year. It seemed very fitting that we stood in silence alongside our friends at Feltonfleet on Remembrance Day to honour those who gave their lives in the First World War.A big thank you to our Director of Sport, Simon Sheldon, for organising – we look forward to visiting Feltonfleet next year.
