The national competition qualifying window runs from March until June each year. The purpose is to guide competitors to perform at the right time. This reflects the process of qualifying and then more importantly, performing at the Olympic Games exactly the right moment.
The Royal School has had an outstanding qualifying window phase with 14 swimmers making the British Summer Championships (in the top 24 swimmers in GB) which are held in July in Sheffield and nine swimmers qualifying for the Home Nations Summer Championships (the next fastest 24 swimmers in GB).

The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
