Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Adlington OBE officially opened the new swimming pool at Godstowe Prepatory School earlier this month.

Rebecca spoke at length to children and answered questions before cutting the ribbon, with students setting new pool records straight after.

The two-time Olympic gold medallist said: “The new pool at Godstowe is an incredible facility, and it was my absolute pleasure to spend time speaking to the pupils.

"It is my vision to see all children leave primary education able to swim.

"I am keen to share what swimming has given me in terms of confidence, teamwork and communication skills.”

Godstowe headmistress, Sophie Green said “We are absolutely delighted with the completed pool.

"Our pupils have enjoyed filling a time capsule to place in the undercroft and we are all very excited.”
