Congratulations to our Academy students who recently competed in the District Swimming Gala at Basildon Sporting Village.

Triple Medal Winner Ugne.R

Our squad performed really well and were awarded a total of 9 medals, finishing the event 4th  out of 7 schools

“I competed in the swimming gala and won a bronze medal for the Medley and Butterfly events. This experience made me feel happy as they were the first medals I have ever won.” Ugne.R - Year 9

“I found swimming quite easy but trying to swim faster than usual was a bit tough. I won silver in the front crawl race without realising, it was a good experience and I’d like to do it again.” Joseph.C - Year 8
