English Schools Swimming Gala Success

The junior and intermediate swimming team entered the English schools swimming relay championships on Friday 30 September. This was the first time we had entered this prestige event. The competition was from various schools from Manchester, Liverpool, Southport and Preston. The intermediate team swam outstandingly and finished 2nd and 3rd in their races beating Loreto Grammar, Altrincham Grammar, Bury Grammar, Queens, Kings and many more schools. Canon Slade from Manchester pipped us to winning but finishing 2nd was outstanding. A fantastic swim -  well done to Grace, Grace, Millie and Grace from years 9 & 10.  The girls will hopefully now represent the North West in the finals in London aquatics centre in November.

The junior team finished 10th and 12th in their races and can be very pleased with this result as 26 schools took part. Well done to Kate, Elyse, Emily and Zoe!
