National Swimming Finals

Year 6 compete in the National Swimming Finals

Our Year 6 Beardwood Bank swimmers reached the finals of the English Schools’ Competition. Up against stiff competition, our team put in a huge amount of effort and only missed out on the finals for the Medley Relay by 0.06 of a second! This made them really determined for the Freestyle Relay – where after the heats their time was the 10th fastest in the whole country!!!

Our team qualified for the ”˜b’ final, where they finished in 4th place – narrowly missing out on 3rd by 0.01 of a second!

Taking our best times from the competition we are the 17th fastest for Medley relay in the country and 10th fastest for Freestyle Relay. Amazing considering the size of our school!

Well done to our swimmers: Emily Berry, Charlotte Cootes, Eloise Littlefair and Molly Robinson-Taylor.
