Some of our Year 6 children had a fantastic afternoon at the annual Bridgwater Cluster Swimming Gala organised by Miss Lambert. All the children managed to win at least of one of the races they competed in! In the finals, 5/6 of the races were won! Such a well deserved victory. We are so proud of our children for representing the school and working as a fantastic team
