English Schools’ Swimming Championships

On Saturday, four students from Years 7 and 8 travelled down to the London Aquatic Centre to compete in the National finals of the English Schools’ Swimming Championships.

After qualifying in the North West round back in September, they were excited to compete against the fastest teams across the whole of England. The race, which took place in an Olympic sized pool, was the Junior Medley with Abi swimming backstroke, Grace swimming breaststroke, Nicole swimming fly and Jasmine on the front crawl finishing leg.

They finished 22nd out of 30 teams, moving up 8 places since the first round and all the team gained PB’s. They are now the fastest team in the North West in both the Freestyle Relay and the Medley Relay – a super achievement. It was a very exciting time in Westholme history! Well done to all the girls and thank you to all the parents who came to support.
