We were able to hold our first Swimming Gala in three years at Brough Park Leisure Centre on 1st July.

It was great to see so many students from Key Stage 3 and 4 racing competitively against each other in front crawl, back stroke, and relay races, especially given that so many swimming lessons have been missed over the past two years.

There were surprising performances, as some usually pedestrian swimmers found a new burst of energy and raced home ahead of their peers, when they had reportedly been fairly evenly matched, in the races.

Students showed courage and determination as they gave of their swimming best to stay the course and complete the race.

Cheers and clapping from the spectators greatly enhanced the day, as everyone cheerfully encouraged each other on! Even those half a length behind in the race stuck it out to swim home, to cheers ringing in their ears.

Thanks to swimming staff at Brough Park, Leek for their support with this special event!
