Congratulations to our Junior School relay teams who competed at the South East Regional Primary Schools’ Swimming Championships on Saturday.

Our swimmers had qualified in both the Small Schools Freestyle Relay and Medley Relay, the teams as follows:

Freestyle Relay Medley Relay
Elicia Elicia
Chloe Eva
Sophie Chloe
Isabelle Sophie


After the heats, Walthamstow Hall were well placed for the finals where they exceeded their expectations and seedings. Swimming against some tough competition, Wally achieved second place in the Freestyle Relay and third in the Medley Relay – an outstanding achievement from everyone who competed.

Big thanks are due to Mrs Carr and to Mrs Dymond in helping to prepare the pupils for this competition. Thank you also to the parents for supporting and cheering from the pool gallery on the day and to Mrs Carr for her support poolside.

As they finished in the top three teams in both relays, Walhamstow Hall have qualified for the English Primary Schools’ National Team championships, to be held at Ponds Forge International Centre in Sheffield next month.

Well done Team Wally, we are so very proud of you!
