The IAPS hold 28 different sporting events. Swimming has the largest participants with over 250 schools across the length and breadth of the country taking part and over 4,000 swimmers competing in the preliminary rounds.
Only the top 20 relay teams and 20 individual swimmers in the country qualify for the final. To gain a place in the final of this competition is an amazing achievement and all the swimmers should be very proud of their success.
The final was held at the London Aquatics Centre at the Olympic Park. We also had the pleasure of watching Tom Daley, Olympic diver, in training in-between races.

U13 medley relay team 13th
U13 freestyle relay team – 14th
