Swimmers secure cup at national competition

Talented swimmers from Chetwynde were a splash hit bringing home a trophy when they competed in a national finals for a record 28th time.

The four pupils – Isabelle Tyson, Norah Graham, William Brough and Archie Williams – raced in the 28th National ESSA Primary Team Championships at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.

Head of Primary Reece Edwards, who took the children to the event in Sheffield, said it had been a brilliant competition and they were very pleased to come home with the President’s Cup, awarded for being the fastest state school in their heats.

“We are so proud of the swimmers who continued our long tradition of not only representing Chetwynde School at this prestigious national event but maintaining our track record of success in the prizes. The pupils enjoyed a fantastic experience and showed great teamwork when competing.”

Chetwynde was the only school to reach the finals for a consecutive 28th year after qualifying through the North West division.
