On Wednesday the girls gym team finished in 5th place overall at the national finals in Stoke. The first 3 schools were all independent schools with dedicated gym classes and coaches! To be on a similar level to these schools is amazing and an absolute credit to our gymnasts and our amazing coach Mr Aspinall, whom without this would not be possible.
We came 3rd on the vault and 4th on the floor. We have things to learn with the acrobatic side of things – finishing 9th out of 18 schools, but still a pleasing result and one to be proud of and to learn from.
A great achievement for the girls and the school. Many people commented on how well our children conducted themselves and how good they looked in their bespoke leotards.
The pleasing thing is that 2 of the 4 girls could qualify again next year.
So, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved and well done for putting our school and Preston on the gymnastics map!!
