Rising Star


Our super talented James W, in Y7, competed in the second qualifier for the English Championships in Telford on 12th May 2019, against 34 other 11-12 year old males.

He did his set routine which has to include certain moves and his voluntary routine in which James can choose his moves, if James does harder moves he will attain a higher tariff score. James chose to do 2 double back somersaults and he came first getting the gold medal with 82.1 score!

In his first qualifier in Southampton at the start of April James had come 4th with a score of 80.87 but on May 12th he beat his score by 2 clear points.

James is now in second place overall in the group and now goes through to the English Championships final to be held at Sheffield EIS in September. The winner of the final will be the English Champion at Silver Level in the male 11-12 year old group.

Amazing achievement James. Well done. We are so proud of you!
