AP swim clinic

Posted: 4th July 2024

Last week, some of our pupils were lucky enough to take part in a session provided by AP Race Clinics. AP Race Clinics is an organisation founded by Olympic gold medallist Adam Peaty to promote and support aspiring swimmers. This fantastic session was led by development lead Kevin Pickard and two times Commonwealth medallist Elliot Clogg.
 
The afternoon started in the Andrew’s Hall, where pupils were given a talk on sports psychology. This was an in-depth exploration into the different aspects of a swimmer’s life outside the pool to enhance a swimmer’s productivity. Elliot Clogg used his own experiences to demonstrate the importance of a growth mindset to a swimmer’s success, and how it’s benefitted his life outside of the swimming pool as well! After the talk, the pupils went up to the viewing gallery in the swimming pool for a land based warm up, before they started the much anticipated swim session!

 

This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils cultivate their skills and be inspired by such successful swimmers. Thank you so much to AP Clinic for visiting us!

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
