b'THE ELLESMERIAN Since my arrival, I have been overwhelmed with the determination and enthusiasm of the student athletes at Ellesmere, and this shows in their successes during the 2021/22 season. Having a programme boast seven international athletes is a huge achievement; well done169to all those student athletes that qualified and were able to compete for their country. However, our achievements do not stop there. In addition to our international recognitions, we had countless other successes last season including County, Regional, and Home Nation Champions and medallists, as well as personal bests in abundance. A massive well done to each and every one of our student athletes for their successes during the 2021/22 season. The Coaching Team and I want to personally wish the Ellesmerian class of 2021/22 who are moving on from the Swimming Academy, good luck in their future both in and out of the pool. We start the new season with a vision: to be the leading independent school programme in the country. The work starts now.GW'
