Malvern College held their own version of Hunted, inspired by the Channel 4 TV show.

Pupils were sent into the Malvern Hills to evade capture by staff.

Doing their very best to stay undetected from staff hunters, drones and search and rescue dogs, the 22 lower sixth students from Malvern College in Worcestershire battled against a torrential downpour in a bid to triumph and bank money for a charity of their choice.

Students worked to raise funds, which were pooled into the winning duo’s charity jackpot.

The school's pupils also separately raised money to pay for a helicopter extraction.

Winners of the Hunted event were Mary Needham and Harriet Sneyd from Ellerslie house and their chosen charity for the funds raised was Plan International, a development and humanitarian organisation.

Jay Watts, Head of Outdoor Pursuits at Malvern College, said the event helped to build young people’s confidence and resilience, as well as enhance their problem-solving skills.

He said: “The Hunted event is one of the highlights of Malvern College’s calendar - it’s renowned for not only being an immense challenge for pupils - but actually really fun too.

“It also serves a real purpose for our young people - as the students are taken off campus to descend into the Malvern Hills to go under the radar - in the hope of remaining undetected for the duration of the challenge, it requires them to not only think creatively but also plan ahead and problem-solve.

“The helicopter was a particular draw for many of the students, who took part, as it added to the excitement and rush for them.

“A huge well done to Mary and Harriet but also a big congratulations to all who took part.

"There were some truly staggering performances from all teams in the attempt to evade the hunters - and not only that, a fantastic sum was raised for Plan International."

The event took place over the weekend of Saturday, June 18.

Last month, Year 10 students also took part in the school’s annual Lost challenge, which saw them blindfolded and driven 50 kilometres away from the school

They had no maps or electronic devices and had 24 hours to navigate their way back to campus.
