More than 250 gymnasts from 19 local primary and six secondary schools competed in the 26th Grantham Schools Championships at The Meres leisure centre last Sunday.

Walton Girls retained both the under-13 and under-16 girls’ team titles, taking the senior age group from KGGS by virtue of scoring higher on the vault. KGGS were also runners-up in the under-13s, ahead of West Grantham Academy.

King’s School narrowly won both boys’ team titles, with Priory Ruskin runners-up in the under-13 event.

In the under-9 girls’ team competition, National won by four clear marks, ahead of Cliffedale and Allington & Sedgebrook. St Mary’s took top spot in the under-11s, from Huntingtower and third placed National.

St Mary’s A triumphed in the primary boys’ team competition, with a strong looking National finishing second.
