ESSA National Finals 2023


ESSA Primary Schools’ Team Championship Finals

On Saturday 4 girls travelled up to represent the school at the National ESSA Primary Swim Champs. The girls made it through 2 regional rounds to get to the Championships in Sheffield. It was such a great experience for all, with the girls swimming their fastest Freestyle Relay times, going sub 1min for the first time! The girls finished 4th in the country, in a very close final, missing out on bronze by 0.11 milliseconds. 

A big well done Lexi, Holly, Emma and Ava. We are so proud of you!
