British Schools Orienteering Championships, 2009

For those unfamiliar with the format of the British Schools it is very much focused on the English/Welsh system and is run on Year groupings that run continuously from Primary School through to the end of the Secondary phase. This means that Year 8 is roughly equivalent to our S1. The Years are taken from 31 August.

One other anomaly that will be seen in the results is that in the overall competition Banchory Primary are ranked second in the Middle/Preparatory section because they include Year 7 pupils who would not be in the English Primary system.

I have tried to extract all of the Scottish competitors from the full results - apologies if I have missed anyone. You can download the full results list as a Word document.
