Senior School Swimming Gala

Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in the Senior School swimming gala last Wednesday. All the girls swam their best and the atmosphere was excellent, with every girl supporting her House and producing some excellent swimming. Thank you to all the staff, Sixth Form and helpers without whom the gala would not have been so successful.
