Leading from the front were captains William Fawcett, who won the Year 6 butterfly, and Camille Vannier who was a close second in the Year 6 freestyle.

Wins also came from Emily Gray, Year 5 girls' freestyle, who was 0.1s outside the record, Sonny Maddison, Year 5 boys' backstroke and Tom Dennis, Year 6 boys' freestyle.

The team also won the Year 5 and Year 6 boys' trophies and the half of the relays.
