Medal Success for Swimmers

Congratulations to three pupils from Forest Park who were selected to take part in the Independent Schools Association (ISA) National Swimming Competition, held at the London Aquatics Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on Saturday 1st December.

Vincent, Georgia, and William were selected to represent the North team following qualification through the North 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 helped the Junior North team to finish second overall out of seven teams.

Swimming forms a key part of the broad Sports curriculum at Forest Park, with pupils benefiting from weekly lessons. In addition, the school participates in a range of swimming competitions and events each year.

Forest Park’s Sports Coordinator and Manager of the North Schools competitor team, Amanda Pawson, said: “Congratulations to all of the children that 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. The children were all so calm in front of such a large audience and we are very proud of them all.”
