Massive well done to our Y7 student Tilly D-H (7Ap1) who managed to make it into the finals of the 50M freestyle in the Gloucester Swimming County finals.  Tilly set a new PB with an incredible time of 32.56.  A fantastic student who obviously works just as hard in the pool as she does in class.  Well done Tilly!
