U11 Invitational Swimming Gala

It was a great atmosphere on poolside on Monday afternoon for our first swimming gala of the year. We welcomed U11 teams from Highfields, Wellow and St George’s Prep.  With over fifty competitors there was an abundance of spectators so as you can imagine poolside was not a quiet place! Every pupil competed in both individual events and team relays, gaining experience of competitive swimming in a fun and friendly environment.  

The St Hugh’s team have been training hard in swim squad hobby, in addition to their weekly curricular lessons. They certainly impressed, winning the vast majority of races whilst demonstrating good stroke technique. More importantly, it was great to see them having the courage to attempt more advanced skills including competitive starts, turns and finishes! Our strong performance was a nice reminder of just how valuable an asset our pool is for the pupils. 

Well done!
