Henley Schools' Challenge

A team of four Sixth Formers took on the challenge of an open water swim in the River Thames, namely the Henley Classic, which is one of the main events in the open water calendar. The team travelled up the night before so they were ready for the 3am alarm call and with the race starting as the sun rose.

The boys all started in the first wave of four with 100 other swimmers and completed the 2.1 km course upstream in impressive times of under 40 minutes. A special mention should go to André who was the fourth fastest junior in a time of 30.52 seconds.

Head of Aquatics Dr Robb said: “The team all discovered a new take on swimming and are planning to return to the event next year.”
