Swimming Gala at Ratcliffe College

Highclare School

Pupils from Highclare Junior Schools travelled to Ratcliffe College in Leicestershire to compete in a Junior Swimming Gala (Years 3 to 6).  It was a wonderful opportunity for both our experienced and lesser experienced swimmers to compete in a very close and competitive gala,  crammed with races.  The scoring reflected the close nature of the contest and we are delighted that Highclare won the event scoring 132 points to 117, with a fantastic display of technique and determination.  It was a great team effort by all and, although it involved a late night,  a very enjoyable occasion.  The gala was also well supported by Highclare parents who helped produce a lovely atmosphere poolside.

A big thank you to Ratcliffe College for their hospitality.
