We are delighted to share news of our students’ recent sporting achievements outside School.
In the holidays Imogen in Year 8 competed in the 200m and 50m breaststroke events at the Swim England National Summer Championships in Sheffield.
She qualified easily for both Finals. After a closely fought race Imogen took Silver in the 200m, missing out on Gold by just 0.15 seconds! She then went on claim another Silver medal in the 50m event.
This was a fantastic debut at national level for Imogen and it resulted in her being selected by the Swim England Talent National 13/14 yrs Age Group Development Programme for 2022-23.
Staying in the water, this weekend Alice in Year 10 completed the Solent Swim in aid of the charity Aspire, which helps people paralysed with spinal injuries. Alice was one of 12 to swim the busy route between Gosport and Ryde on the Isle of Wight in one hour 12 minutes – arriving first and setting the fastest time for a female swimmer since the event began ten years ago. Alice raised just over £1000 for Aspire – a fantastic achievement.
