Beech Hall School

Channel Swim Squad 2021

13 pupils in Year 8 to 11 make up the Beech Hall Channel Swim Squad.

Preparations to accomplish the extraordinary goal have begun, with the squad participating in a strenuous training programme. Led by qualified, open-water swimming coaches, Nikki Pope and Karen Ennis, the Beech Hall Channel Swim Squad are being put through their paces with twice-weekly training sessions in the school’s outdoor swimming pool, before progressing to combat the natural conditions of open water. The team is working tirelessly to develop their technique, cardio and body composition in the water.
