Five pupils from Sibford School near Banbury will be flying the flag for the South East when they travel to Sheffield on Saturday (June 20) to complete in the English Schools Swimming Association National Relay Championships.
The team of Lara Mills (age 10), Mila Jabb (10), Louis Bushby (10), Lenny Townsend (11) and Kal Kinser (10), qualified as regional finalists after competing in the Divisional Finals held at Guildford in April.
2015 marks the 21st ESSA Primary Schools’ Team Relay Championships and the Sibford Team will be competing in both the Freestyle Relay and the Medley Relay.
Sibford teacher and swimming coach, Claire Ferley, said: “To get through to the national finals is a brilliant achievement for the team and we wish them all the best for Saturday.”
The competition will take place at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.
