Swimming Gala, Wednesday 18th April

Earl Soham Swimmers go one better than last year!

In the swimming gala held at Fram. College this morning our Earl Soham children once again did themselves proud. Last year we finished 3rd overall, but were top small school. This year we were again top small school, but finished 2nd overall with 109 points, the winners being Debenham with 141.
All of the children should be proud of their efforts, as we were represented in 11 out of 14 of the individual event finals. The only disappointment of the morning was that there were no medals presented this year, especially as we had an individual race winner in the girls' backstroke. Well done young lady!!
The morning culminated in the normal chaos of the raft race - the girls taking the raft one way down the length of the pool and the boys bringing it back.  All good 'clean' fun!!! Well done everyone, and I hope your parents aren't too hoarse!


  1. Once again so full of pride after watching this event, we were epic! It is so great to see the wonderful team spirit our school has as the children stood up & cheered on every Earl Soham participant. I feel exhausted just watching it, Well done to every single one of them.

  2. Another fantastic sporting achievement and, by all accounts, a tremendous team effort. I'm delighted that you are really 'competing' so well and representing our school with such pride. A very happy Headteacher!
