Next up ... the National Finals!
On March 25, our fabulous gymnasts competed in the Southern Region Competition winning 10 Golds, 9 Silver and 3 Bronze medals.
As well as performing their socks off, the students were a complete delight, approaching the competition with great maturity. They were so supportive towards all of the other team members, many of whom had not performed in a gymnastic competition before.
As well as winning 22 medals we have also had official confirmation today that we have 5 qualifications for the National Finals in Stoke on Trent in May:
U14 Boys Tumbling: Patrick Page

The Palatine Hill is the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it and upon the Circus Maximus. From the time of Augustus, Imperial palaces were built here. https://t.co/pOiISv7ogR 3:56 PM - 20 Feb 2019
