Swimming Gala


On Thursday 13th July, a group of Key Stage 2 children took part in the brilliantly organised Sherborne Schools Area Swimming Gala.

The gala was split into three disciplines; freestyle, breastroke and backstroke and finished with a freestyle relay.


The standard of swimming was very high, with many of the schools being able to field club swimmers. This meant that the races were very competitive and some were won by a fraction of  second. There was a lot of noisy support, and everyone clearly enjoyed the event. Congratulations are due to Max, who was third in the Y5 breastroke race, and Amelia who was second in the Y4 backstroke race.

We would like to say a big THANKYOU to Ruth Layton and the Oxley Centre Staff for their excellent organisation of the event..
