HOHS held a swimming gala at home on Tuesday evening, with our Upper Prep pupils in Years 3-5 competing against Taverham Hall School.

There was an amazing atmosphere in the pool. The gala was very well supported with parents from both schools and it was literally standing room only. The noise was deafening and there was a genuine feeling of excitement and high spirits.  

The competition was fierce and unfortunately we lost out to Taverham, however our pupils had some excellent wins.  Our first and second places are listed below:

1st Backstroke: Emma Bell, Anna Luterbacher

1st Breaststroke: Warwick Davey

2nd Breaststroke: Georgia Williams, Max Chambers, Oscar Williams

1st Freestyle: James Bell, Daisy Harris, Oscar Williams

2nd Freestyle: Warwick Davey, Georgia Williams, Max Chambers, Issy Sellors

1st Medley Relay: Year 5

Every pupil from Years 3, 4 and 5 either took part in the gala or assisted on poolside. Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm.

Girl of the Gala: Ashlyn Gibb

Boy of the Gala: James Bell
