St Paul’s won the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta in spectacular style on Sunday, breaking records along the way.

The 1st VIII overcame Abingdon, Latymer Upper and Radley on their way to the final and had generated huge excitement on the bank throughout their journey. 

The School is incredibly proud of the team's achievements and extend thanks to all the staff and parents who supported the boys throughout.

Simply Awesome.  For the crowds on the bank today they have witnessed a truly amazing part of history.  Bobby Thatcher’s St. Paul’s School have been favourites for this event all season and their performance today did not disappoint.  On the day, Eton College were completely outclassed.  The crew equalled the Barrier record, beat their own Fawley record and then destroyed the course record by 11 seconds to win in a time of 6:06.  The best schoolboy crew.  Ever.
