A big well done to all 12 of our Prep swimmers who competed in the annual Cheltenham Primary Schools Swimming Gala this week.

In the individual event, Rose and Rosie both finished 4th in their heats, Freddie and David came second in their heats, with David qualifying and Freddie just missing out on progressing through to the final.

In a very close and exciting final, David eventually finished in an excellent 3rd place – a great achievement.

Both the relay teams performed extremely well in their heats to qualify for the finals. The Year 6 team, had a great swim, finishing in an excellent 6th place.

Huge congratulations go to the Year 5 team who produced a fantastic performance in the final which included an exciting and nail biting finish as they secured an amazing first place!

All in all it was a great night for St Edward’s in the pool – well done to all who took part.
