Swim England success

Huge congratulations to Fifth Form swimmer Robbie Hemmings who has been successful in securing a place in Swim England’s National Junior squad. The recently announced Squad for the 2020-21 season features 71 promising talents, 8 coaches and 6 sports science support staff. Athletes will attend online workshops and camps, with the first being hosted this month. Once the current COVID-19 restrictions ease the Squad will look to returning to competition. Robbie broke on to the National scene in 2018 competing in his first British Summer Championships. A year later in 2019, he returned to be crowned British Summer Champion in the 100m and 200m Back. Robbie’s selection for the Junior Squad comes in the 100m Back Stroke.


Tony Diprose, Director of Sport and Physical Wellbeing, commented:

“To reach national level in sport takes a great deal of time, dedication and determination.   To have maintained this level of performance during this particularly challenging year is great credit to Robbie.  We wish him every success in the upcoming camps and hopefully events once competitions resume.”
