Bellevue swimmers’ success at ISA National Swimming Final

Posted on: 27 Jan 2017

Pupils from three of Bellevue’s Preparatory Schools have achieved seven medals in the Independent Schools Association (ISA) National Swimming Competition, held at the London Aquatics Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on Saturday 21 January.

A total of nine children, all aged between eight and 11, from Forest Park Preparatory School and Forest Preparatory School in Greater Manchester, and Gateway School in Buckinghamshire, were selected to represent the National teams following qualification through the Regional Finals.

Cheered on by proud parents, families and friends, the young swimmers took to the Olympic pool in front of around 3,000 spectators.

Against fierce competition from independent schools from across the country, the children were awarded seven medals:

Another Forest Park pupil, Vincent Evans, and two further Gateway pupils, Lucy Allsop and Oakley Denson, competed in the event but missed out on medal places.

Swimming forms a key part of the broad sports curriculum at all Bellevue schools, with pupils benefiting from weekly lessons. In addition, the schools participate in a range of swimming competitions and events each year.

Forest Park Preparatory School's Sports Coordinator and Manager of the North Schools competitor team, Amanda Booth, said: “Congratulations to all of the children who took part in the competition. It was a truly amazing day and a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to compete at this level and to swim in the Olympic pool. All of the children were so calm in front of such a large audience and we are very proud of them all.”
