Young geographers quizzed their hearts out in a competition against schools from all over the district.

More than 100 pupils, split in 30 teams from seven schools, took part in the fifth annual Harpenden and St Albans District Geography Quiz held at St George’s School.

The contest was separated by age group - Roundwood Park won Year 8 and 9, and Sandringham won Year 10.

St George’s and St Albans School were runners-up, and Beaumont, The King’s and Sir John Lawes schools also took part.

Geography teacher at St George’s, Lucy Terry, said: “The quiz has grown in size and popularity over the half decade that St George’s has been organising it.
