Five children from St Ippolyts CE Primary School made a huge splash at the ESSA Division 10 primary schools' team championships at Barnet Copthall.

On their debut visit, St Ippolyts put on an outstanding performance in the small schools' category.

They came first in the mixed medley stroke relay, beating current holders Heatherton House School who have won the medley relay for the past four years.

St Ippolyts also took second place in the freestyle relay just behind Heatherton House.

The swimmers were Jessica Jackson, Domenic Stevens, Lucy Lapham, Alessandra Stevens and Christian deTrafford.

They now go through to represent Division 10 at the national swimming championships at Ponds Forge in Sheffield on June 21 in both the mixed medley relay and freestyle relay, along with Heatherton House.
