Junior Swimming Gala

Lisle Marsden took part in the Junior Swimming Gala on Saturday 11th March at the Grimsby Leisure Centre. 8 schools from the local area took part, with Lisle Marsden taking a team of 20 swimmers, some experienced and some brand new to the gala experience.

All swimmers put 100% into their individual and team performances and did themselves, their parents and the school extremely proud.


There were some outstanding performances on the night and because of that we were hoping for a good result for the team. Overall the girls team came a tremendous 1st place, the boys placed a well earned 4th, with Lisle Marsden placing 2nd overall. This also means that the team will progress, once again, to the regional championship finals later in the year!

Once again, we were overjoyed with both the results and the performances of the pupils, both in and out of the pool. We always enjoy taking the pupils to the gala, and after the night’s results were once again left bursting with pride.

A massive thank you to all the parents, grandparents, friends and family who came out to support the children – you were once again amazing!
