The Hewett Academy has welcomed pupils from nearby primary schools for a day of water-based competition and fun in its feeder school swimming gala.
Pupils from Bignold Primary School, Edith Cavell Academy, The Free School Norwich, Tuckswood Academy, and Bluebell Primary School competed in a range of different strokes, finishing with two relays which were won by Bignold and The Free School.
Bignold pupil Izzy was the star of the day, taking home a clutch of medals for her success in the pool.
The Hewett Academy’s transition manager Sue Ferguson said: “The standard of swimming from all five schools was exceptional and the way in which the students all conducted themselves throughout was fantastic.
“All students got involved in all the races and were positively encouraging fellow swimmers.”
