Trampolining and Gymnastics
The Senior school trampolining programme involves a weekly specialist session with our Elite performers bouncing at clubs linked to the school. We have close links with RSC who train at Royal Russell and many pupils compete outside school at Regional and National level.
We have 6 trampolines, 2 of competition standard and 4 training beds. We work closely with RSC who train at Royal Russell and compete on the National circuit, we have access to their 3 National standard trampolines when required.
We enter the National schools competitions and have great success at Regional level with the majority of our trampolinists qualifying through to the Southern Zonal finals. At this level the competition is fierce with teams from the South of England all cometing for a place at the National Finals. We have had great success qualifying several pupils through to the finals both individually and as part of a team. The teams have regularly finished as runners up at the National finals which is a fantastic achievement. We are now competing in the higher leveled groups in the Intermediate and Elite categories.
We also enter the Croydon Schools events where we win everything we enter from Elite level individuals to Novice teams we are a force to be reckoned within the borough.
In the Senior School we offer an extra-curricular gymnastics club for those pupils who wish to continue developing their gymnastics skills.
We enter the Surrey schools floor and vault competition as well as the Sports Acro event. At the Sports Acro competition pupils perform a floor routine in pairs using balances, skills and dance. For our top level gymnasts we enter the London Region competitions which lead to National finals qualification.
We finished in the top 10 in the Surrey schools events with the Sports Acro team 5th, not bad as this is an U19 competition and our pupils were Year 8! Our mixed group gymnasts qualified for the Milano National Team Gymnastics finals where they finished 8th in the country.
