ISA Regional Championships November 2023

On a crisp November morning, the Swim Team headed north to Millfield to compete in the Independent Schools Association Regional Swimming Gala. For the youngest pupils, it would be their first competitive experience, for the experienced swimming pupils, it would be an opportunity to win the regional event and earn a place on the ISA South West Team that competes in the National Championships in December at the iconic London Aquatic Centre.

The performance of the team was underpinned by the caring parents who travelled as Chaperones, Official and supporters and in typical Talbot Heath fashion, a teacher from another school commented on how impressed she was in seeing our older pupils nurture the younger pupils, guiding them during warm-ups, and offering pre-race talks and advice around the competition.

The team earned an impressive 28 top 3 places, with 12 Golds earned by 6 swimmers (Caidee, Daria, Victoria, Bertie, Halle & Betsy), 10 Silvers (Thalia, Alex, Florence x 2, Theia, Blossom x 2, Lottie, Erin, Polly G), 7 Bronze (Lara x 2, Alex, Lottie, Erin & Katherine x 2). Indeed, every pupil in the team made at least a top 10 finish.

Congratulations go to the following pupils who qualified for the ISA South West Team:

  • Caidee S, Thalia M, Lara M, Florence C, Victoria H, Daria K, Halle R, Bertie B, Erin M, Betsy V and Polly G.
