In November, the Infant and Junior School took a small team of swimmers (Christian, Louis, Charlotte, Felix and Harry) to the ISA North Region Swimming Gala at Macclesfield Leisure Centre.
Abbey Gate College were competing against 19 other independent schools from all over the North region, swimming for a place in the national finals being held at the Olympic Pool in London.
The standard was very high and the children were perfect ambassadors for the school, putting in some very impressive displays.
Notable performances were: Louis, for coming third overall in the Open Butterfly; the U12 boys, for coming 3rd overall in the squadron relay; and Charlotte, for coming 2nd overall in the U11 front crawl and 1st overall (by 4 seconds!) in the U11 breaststroke – her most remarkable feat being that our U11 Girls Team came Runners Up overall, and our ’team’ was just Charlotte!
It was a long, hot yet enjoyable afternoon and congratulations to all our representatives!
