We are very proud to announce that one of our year 12 student will be representing Cecil Jones Academy in the National Schools Diving Championships. We offer our support and wish her the best of luck during the competitions.
Around ten years ago, whilst in primary school, I was talent spotted by Southend Diving Club and went through trials to then be put on the Talent In Development (TID) programme, where I went on to do two TID games. I have worked my way through the age group level competitions, in which I have competed at National Age Group Championships for the last three years. I have also gone on to qualify as a Level 1 Regional Judge and a Level 1 Assistant Coach. More recently I have qualified for the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) Diving Championships at the London Aquatics Centre where I will be representing Team East and Cecil Jones Academy in December 2019. Whilst the goal is not the Olympics, I aspire to stay part of the sport I love for as long as possible.
