In April Stoke Park School took three teams of gymnasts to the North Bristol Schools Gymnastics competition.

Two of their teams finished first while their other team finished thirdenabling them to qualify for the West of England Summer Games finals held at Bath University for the fourth year in a row.

All of the teams that have qualified from each area compete in these finals and the standard  is very high. The children worked really hard in preparation for this, practicing after school and giving up break times to help perfect their routines. They competed on Floor and Vault, managing to hold their nerve and achieve high scores from the judges.

Their Year 3/4 team who competed at level 2 (which means they are in a category against club gymnasts, even though none of the children in our team attend a club) finished an impressive sixth place,and their year 5/6 team competed at level 1 and finished first to take home gold medals! All of their hard work and dedication paid off and everyone at Stoke Park School is extremely proud of all of them – well done Stoke Park Gymnasts!
