Clayesmore Year 4 swimmers impress at County Finals

Clayesmore Year 4 swimmers place second and third in Primary Schools Gala County Finals

Clayesmore Prep enjoyed another very successful swimming finals, the Year 4 Primary Schools Gala County Finals, which was a brilliant way to end the most remarkable year the swim team has ever had.

Following the regional rounds held this term, the seven areas of Dorset (North, East and West Dorset, Weyport, Christchurch, Poole and Bournemouth) competed at the County final in Dorchester on 28 June 2018.

Five of our Year 4 pupils  Cody, Matthew T, Ned, Rafael and Wilf  represented North Dorset, together with swimmers from local primary schools in our area, with Swim Director Mrs Ali Pickford as Team Manager.

Our pupils really enjoyed the gala and had excellent results, the best of which were second place in the freestyle relay team race, second place for Cody in the 25m backstroke, and third place for Rafael in the 25m front crawl. The boys had come first in the mixed stroke relay but sadly had a disqualification. Congratulations to the whole team nonetheless.
