Each year, the Wrench Shield is awarded to the house with the best performance during the year. The shield is presented in memory of Surgeon Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Mason Wrench, a keen educationalist who concluded his full and eventful life in Baslow, and who was a Governor of Lady Manners School. Dates on the shield go back to 1912, when the house system was instigated and there were only three houses: North, South and Town. The house events included in the competition are: badminton, basketball, chess, cricket, cross country (boys and girls), dance, enterprise, football (boys), hockey (boys and girls), house points, literacy quiz, netball, quiz, rounders, rugby, softball, sports day (boys, girls and overall) and tennis. This year, the competition has been intense and very close, and we are delighted to announce that the winner is...Glossop. Well done to everyone in Glossop!
