Congratulations to the Junior School swimming teams who are now ranked 14th in Freestyle and 16th in Medley in the country. The girls competed in the National Finals of the Primary Schools Relay Championships held in Sheffield at the weekend. The teams swam their best times in both the Freestyle and Medley relays on the day to achieve these excellent results.
Swimming against 24 school teams from across the country in the finals, the girls faced stiff competition. However all their hard work and extra training sessions certainly paid off. The girls reached the finals having been placed in the top 3 of the West Midlands heats last term. Over 250 schools take part in this competition nationally so their achievement is outstanding.
Well done to all of the girls involved!

A further highlight of the day was meeting paralympic medallist Jane Stiveder who competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
