          Woodkirk's staff member brings home swimming medals

          Philip Pratt, PE Vocational Coordinator at the school, competed at the Masters LEN European Aquatics Championships which took place at London Aquatics Centre at the Olympic Park. 

          After ten months of gruelling training, Philip took part in four days of competition and achieved top spot in the 4x50m mixed medley.

          Philip, representing East Leeds Swimming Club and Great Britain, even set a British record in the process.

          Other results saw him pick up a pair of bronze medals in both the 50m backstroke and the 100m backstroke. He also posted respectable finishes of fourth and sixth in the 50m medley and 50m freestyle respectively. He said: “It was a great experience to represent both my club and country and I’m proud to travel home with three medals and a British record. “I’m grateful for all of the support shown by the school and the governors.”
