Tweedmouth West Y4 SG Gymnastics Team

Tweedmouth West School only started competitive gymnastics in 2013 and at their first attempt won the Northumberland School Games Gymnastics Key Steps County Finals.

Their 2016 team followed their 2013 teammates by again winning the area and then county finals.

In January of 2017, in a very competitive Berwick Schools Competition, Tweedmouth West First School again won the qualifying event that took them into the County Finals held at Cramlington as part the School Games multi- sports event .

On the finals day The West were in competition with the 5 other regional winners from all over the county with the Judges coming from England Gymnastics regional office.

When The West entered the competition hall the pressure was on as they were the reigning champions and no school had ever won the event two years running

The West were also the only team who adopted the spirit of the Games and followed the guidelines that asked to include a boy in the team.

The Team decided they would overcome their nerves and do what Tweedmouth Westers all ways do and “try their best”.

When all of the teams had individually completed their two routines the medal ceremony began.

Imagine the surprise when the judges announce that the Gold medal winners and County Champions for 2017 and for the second year running were…. Tweedmouth West First School!

Congratulations to Berwick Vipers Under 11 football team who were winners of The Junior Team of the Year
