Back in the swim

Miss Lizzie Fearnley, Head Swim Coach

We are delighted to see the swimming pool reopen after essential maintenance at half term and it’s great to see it being used so much.

An impressive number of students have taken part in squad trials over the past couple of weeks. Ching in the Upper Sixth has been selected as overall club swim captain and Sophie, Year 9, is our junior club captain. Our squad members are all very talented and committed and will only get stronger in the coming months and years.

Swimming has become a key sport for many Woldingham students. Whether swimming during PE lessons or after school in their squad training sessions, students always turn up and give their best efforts. Swimming at Woldingham has promising potential and I’m very excited to see where it may take us.

In other swimming news, well done to Upper Sixth Former Nadia who completed an impressive 5k swim during half term.  Nadia did this to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation in memory of her grandma, Jean, and has raised almost £400 for this very worthy cause.
