On Saturday April 27 Caitlin MacGregor (Prep. 5) went to Royal Russell School to represent Broadbridge Heath’s Farlington School in the IAPS (Independent Association of Preparatory Schools) National Trampolining Competition.

Caitlin competed in the Under 11 individual section against 57 other girls.

After a warm-up, she performed two routines, one of which the competition organisers had set and another of her own choice. She scored very highly in both routines, performing to an excellent standard. Caitlin was awarded first place, making her U11 National IAPS Trampolining Champion.

Miss Currell and the PE department at Farlington are immensely proud of Caitlin’s trampolining achievements.

Credit should also be given to The Flight Crew, Caitlin’s trampolining club based at K2 in Crawley.

Caitlin is an excellent role model for any girls keen to take up trampolining. Farlington Trampolining club is run on Friday afternoons after school during both the Autumn and Spring terms.
