Coopers Coborn pupils had plenty to cheer ahead of the Easter holidays as they came out on top in six of the eight age groups at the Havering Swimming Championships.

Schools from across the borough descended on Abbs Cross and Upminster’s Coopers claimed the first-place honours in the year seven, eight and nine girls’ competitions, as well as the year eight, nine and 10/11 boys’ categories.

The year seven boys and year 10/11 girls finished as runners-up and assistant headteacher Mark Duncan said: “It has been another excellent swimming season for the school teams and was a great gala to end on.”
