We are delighted to announce that yet another Gold medal position place was achieved by Avon House prep school student, Haimish Patel (Year 6) in the individual front crawl during the Redbridge Mini Games Gala.

Haimish has now been selected by the Borough to represent Redbridge at Crystal Palace in not one but two relay events.

Rachel made a real impact on all age groups and she has recently performed at the South Bank with Roger McGough and Carol Ann Duffy no less!
