On Friday 30th September Barr Beacon travelled to Bromsgrove High School to compete in the English Schools Swimming competition.
At this event Barr Beacon would be up against eight private schools meaning that the standard of this competition was high.
Barr Beacon submitted 3 teams for the event, a Year 8 girls team, Year 10 boys team and a Year 10 girls team.
The Year 8 girls team came 4th in their events with a particular good leg from Hollie.
The Year 10 girls team which had Year 9 girls participating in it came 6th in their events. Ella who started the individual medley race finished her leg in 1st place.
The Year 10 boys team came 3rd overall. Henry in Year 8 stepped up to swim two years above himself and had put the team in a good position achieving 2nd place at the end of his leg.
Overall, this was an extremely good event for the Barr Beacon swim team, with a high level of competition present. All swimmers swam excellently and represented the school in a very positive manner.
