The U13 Girls team ranked 17th in the Country in the freestyle relays. The team consists of Sofia Hankey, Olivia Leslie, Maddie Bowcott-McGrath and, Beth Robinson.

The U15 Boys team ranked them 17th for the freestyle relay and 15th for the medley relay. The team consists of Max Cooper, Ashley Donaldson, Jacob Atkinson and, Matthew Watson.

The Finals were held at the Olympic Pool in London, which measures 50m in length. There were 30 schools in each category meaning a lot of spectators for the teams and a lot of pressure.

Mrs Vernon said: “I am very proud of both teams; they were able to go out and swim their best alongside the fastest teams in the country. Memories have been made that will stay with them for a lifetime. They are great role models for the School.”
