Four swimmers from St Felix travelled to Whittlingham Lakes in Norwich for the East Region and Suffolk Open Water Championships and returned with medals and National Qualification places.


First to swim was Maddie Chambers in the 3km event finishing 6th the Region and 2nd in Suffolk in the 13 to 16 year old age group, this was a great result with Maddie exiting with a huge smile on her face and also finishing in the top three in the 15 year age group too in a time of 41 minutes and 38 seconds.


Next up came the 1500m event for Maddie’s sister Katy and Owen Webster, this was only the second time in open water for Katy and Owen’s first ever Open Water race in the 12 to 16 year age group. Katy finished 17th in the Region and 2nd in Suffolk as a 13 year old in a time of 22 minutes and 7 seconds, with Owen finishing 18th in the Region and 4th in Suffolk in a time of 22 minutes and 36 seconds. As Owen was the fastest 12 year old this gave him the automatic National qualifying place for the East Region (finishing 3 minutes ahead of the next 12 year old boy).


The final event was the 5km for the older and more experienced swimmers and Jenny Beevor in her final Open Water event before leaving for university finished with a flurry of medals finishing 3rd in the Region and 2nd in Suffolk with a time of 67 minutes and 50 seconds, less than 40 seconds behind the gold medallist.

Season finishes with medals for St Felix swimmers



The last Meet of the season for most of the St Felix swimmers was held in Basildon Sporting Village in the 50m pool which finished a very successful 10 day training camp in Greece.


The swimmers returned to home soil and won a total of 40 medals, 12 gold, 16 silver and 12 bronze and a fantastic 80% of personal best (PB) swims.

On Saturday four pupils from the Prep Department travelled to Sheffield for the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) Primary Team Championships.


The team comprising of three Upper III (year 6) pupils, Chester Leeming, Samuel Stephens and Joshua Stephens along with Joab Carr (Middle III, Year 5) qualified for the both of the Small School events, the 4x25m Freestyle relay and the 4x25m Mixed Stroke relay. Only 24 schools qualified for each event, from over 250 schools nationally, so qualification alone was a fantastic achievement.


The first event of the day was the heats of the mixed stroke relay, where the team qualified fastest in 1.05.95, nearly three seconds ahead of the next fastest school. Lining up for the final, hugely excited and raring to go the team managed to win GOLD, by three seconds and beating the next East division school by over eight seconds.


After a highly emotional presentation ceremony, the next event soon followed; the freestyle relay. With the boys on a high from the earlier result the team swam a time of 59.99 seconds, much faster than their qualifying time. They were the only team in the event who went sub-60 seconds and they qualified fastest for the final.


The final for the freestyle was the team’s last race, still riding high on the confidence of the mixed stroke relay, the team swam even faster than the heats going 59.48 in the final, placing them 1st in the final and winning gold again.


As Saint Felix School won both events the boys were also awarded the overall Top Small School for 2015.


We would like to pass our congratulations onto Joab, Samuel, Joshua and Chester. These results demonstrate the standard of swimming at Saint Felix, and it shows that with hard work, determination and good training we can get great results nationally.
