BROMFORDS YEAR 9â€™s SWIM INTO GOLD AT THE DISTRICT SWIMMING GALA!
Our Year 9 swimming team made a big splash at the District events calendar by claiming the title as District Champions for their year group! In Year 9 for the girls Charlotte Jordan won gold in the Butterfly and Individual Medley, Holly Tyler won gold in the Breaststroke. For the year 9 boys Matthew Cahill won gold in the backstroke and Luke Coburn won bronze in the frontcrawl. The Mixed Relay Team also won gold.
Our year 9â€™s were not the only students to make impressive performances. In Year 10/11 Alex Drysdale won gold in the butterfly and there were silver medals for Morgan Day and Amy Summers. There was also an impressive performance from Luis Cowgill in the Year 8 Breaststroke and he took home a silver medal. The Year 10/11 mixed relay team were also awarded a bronze medal for their efforts in a convincing team performance. These are just a few of our talented swimmers who claimed medals at the Basildon & Billericay District Gala, held on 13th February, the extensive list of all the medals our students won is shown below.
It was a very successful afternoon and all the students that swam or were part of the squad, represented our school well, cheered loudly and made us all proud to be part of The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College.
Huge congratulations and thank you to every student that was there on the day. Together they have helped Bromfords School to an overall 3rd place in the district for a second successive year.

The National Enterprise Challenge
Year 10 and 11 Business students of The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College have been taking part in the National Enterprise Challenge. Students studying Business and Economics were given the challenge of designing a new range of flip-flops for the rapidly growing social enterprise Gandys Flipflops, and presented their new design to a panel of judges.
The winning group consisted of Year 10 students, Anu Faniyi, Elizabeth Fayehun, Mia Griffin, Frankie Stone, Kaylum Bennett and Chris Allen (photo attached). They designed the Ghandi â€˜Animalâ€™ flip flops that were inspired by the Indian Tsunami and sadly the death of the Ghandi brothers parents in the Tsunami. Students brain stormed on logos, branding, advertising and promotional strategies.
The winning team will now present their new design in the Nationals being held in London in July and will pitch their idea to the famous â€˜Dragonâ€™
