After great performances at county level in September, Walthamstow Hall was represented at intermediate and senior levels at the English Secondary Schools Association National Relay Championships last weekend.

Congratulations to all the swimmers who swam superbly on the day, especially the intermediates who achieved the School's highest ever placing at the finals. Special thanks also to the parents who came to support the teams.
