Megan and Holly Richards Swimming Achievement - Update

We would like to share with you how proud we are of the swimming achievements of two of our Year 10 students - Megan and Holly Richards.

They are currently ranked 22nd/26th for 100fly in Great Britain, 22nd/28th in the 200fly and 37th/42nd in 50fly. 

This has taken a huge dedication from both girls - training four hours every day - while maintaining brilliant effort and attendance in schools.

 

We wish them every success as they seek qualification for the Nationals in July / August. 

 

*** Update 10/05/2016 ***

 

This is an update on Holly's 50 fly after competing at regionals last week, she is now ranked 14th in Britain for the 16 year olds with one more swim meet to go. Megan didn't swim at her best in the 50 fly at regionals as she had just recovered from being ill but is training hard for the last swim meet to qualify for nationals. Megan is ranked 28th and Holly 30th in 100 fly and Megan 25th and Holly 32nd in the 200 fly. The top 44 in the 16 year olds qualify for nationals.

P2P Intergenerational Project

During the academic year 2014/15 students from year 10 participated in the Sedgemoor Community Partnership p2p Intergenerational Project.

Students attended workshops, in their own time, along with a senior group of local residents to compare and discover what it was like to be a teenager in the 1940’s 1950’s and today.  The group looked at pastimes, hobbies as well as debating such things as the current local area’s entertainment opportunities and community venues.

To complete the project the group enjoyed a well-deserved day out at Claverton Manor and the American Museum.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the project.  Thank you to John Parkes of the Sedgemoor Community Partnership and the local senior residents for making the project a valuable learning experience.
