We are off to an extraordinary start and after a week of climbing, the S. Anselm’s community has have completed almost 20% of the challenge – 22,581 metres in total!

That means we have climbed Nanga Parbat (8,125m), K2 (8,611m), and almost all the way up Broad Peak (8,047m).

Our mission leaders in the Form and House competitions so far are as follows:

With the warmer weather arriving, lots of our pupils and their families have seized the opportunity to head outdoors and take to the local Peaks to accumulate their steps climbed.


Huge congratulations to everyone who has taken part so far!

The Challenge: full details

For those who haven’t got started yet, it’s not too late!


A good starting point is to watch this helpful explanatory video from Mr Simpson >>

To enter, you simply need access to a staircase to climb (many times), and/or a fitness device that can can track elevation/stairs climbed, every time your family go out for a walk or bicycle ride.

Let’s get cracking, there is no time to relax!

How to enter


To get started, please submit an Entry Form for each individual who is taking part in the challenge. E.g. Nigel Mansell, not the Mansell Family.  Simply click on the image opposite >>

You should enter the total elevation gained from your daily exercise, or stair/steps climb in metres (which makes it much easier for Mr Simpson to calculate).

If you are climbing steps/stairs, please only count the steps you go up – not those coming down – and then divide your total by four, which will give you an approximate figure in metres.

Don’t forget to send your photos in to cheryl.stevens@anselms.co.uk


Good luck S. Anselm’s!
