Congratulations to four of our fantastic students who took part in the Scottish National Short Course Championships last month. The swimming competition attracts elite athletes from around the world and many Team GB Olympic medalists attended the competition alongside our students.
Year 10, Kathryn, trains roughly 21 hours per week with Tynemouth swimming club and competes at county and regional levels. She competed in the Scottish National Championships for the first time last month swimming the 200 metre breaststroke.
Neave, also in Year 10, qualified for the competition and swam the 200-metre butterfly race, achieving a personal best time.
Fellow student, Jack, who has been swimming competitively for seven years also took part in the 200-metre butterfly race. Jack usually trains around 20 hours per week and had competed in many regional competitions before attending his first national race.
Our fourth student, Robert, competed in both the 200-metre and 100-metre backstroke events. Robert performed brilliantly winning both of his heats and achieving personal best times in both races.
Congratulations to all four of our students - your hard work has paid off!
