Congratulations to the Sport St Edward’s Swim Team who performed incredibly well to finish in first place overall at the ISA Midlands Gala in Walsall.

This fantastic achievement also saw three of our talented swimmers qualify to compete in individual events at the National Gala, which will be held at the Olympic Pool in London at the end of November.

Particular congratulations go to Hugo B (Year 8), Freya H (Year 11) and Mackenzie J (Year 10) who won their races in the Butterfly, Breaststroke and Backstroke respectively. There were also wins for the Year 9/10 girls in the Freestyle Relay (Ciara T, Lexi B, Hannah L & Mackenzie J) and the Year 8 boys in the Medley Relay (Oliver S, Leo DS, Johnnie H & Hugo B).

Some of our brilliant swimmers have a chance to be selected to represent the Midlands in relay competitions at Nationals, and we hope that there will be more Sport St Edward’s pupils challenging in the event taking place in London.

Every swimmer should be extremely proud of their hard work and determination in helping St Edward’s finish in first place at such an event, where everybody’s effort contributed to the great result.
