On Sunday 21th April 2019 pupils from both the Prep and Upper School embarked on the annual swim squad tour of Tenerife.
All swimmers took part in the intensive pool & land training sessions during the week, which proved to be incredibly beneficial. Pupils also took full advantage of the outstanding facilities at the Tenerife Top Training Centre. A centre which is also used by great swimmers such as Adam Peaty MBE and Ian Thorpe.
We participated in a gala against Natación RCNT. A fantastic event which gave us some amazing swims from the pupils. A stand out time was from Ben Taylor Year 8, whose time on the 50m Freestyle (29.10) was a personal best by 4.2 seconds!
The pupils were also treated to an afternoon of water slides at the world-renowned Siam Park.
On yet another occasion our pupils’ excellent behaviour and positive attitude impressed locals and holidaymakers.
Special thanks to Ms. Lorraine, Ms. Garrard and Mr. Kitchen for all their help during the week.
Mr. Ryan, Swimming Coach
