Swimming Star Becky Adlington visits Stockton Primary School

Becky Adlington visit

Today was a very special day for all the pupils at Stockton Primary, but particularly for Violet Gulliver.


Last term Violet and her class entered the Everyone Active Leisure Centres Competition to design a swimming hat.  From the 70,000 entries across the 186 Leisure Centres in the country Violet’s design was selected by Becky Adlington as the winner.  Becky came to visit the whole school for a special assembly when we all got the chance to ask her questions about her swimming career and see some of her Olympic medals.  Violet’s class then went on to have a special swimming lesson with Rebecca Adlington at Southam Leisure Centre.


Mrs Bedgood our Head Teacher said “We are incredibly proud, but not surprised by Violet’s success as she is a truly talented artist”.  Becky Adlington particularly liked the tag line ‘Believe and Achieve’ Violet incorporated into her design which struck a chord with her regarding her work with young swimmers.


At Stockton we place a high value on creativity and nurturing individual talents, and we are proud of the fact that our small school gives a big education.  Prospective parents are invited to our open morning on Friday 7th November from 9.30-10.30.  Please contact the School Office on 01926 812483 for more information – we look forward to hearing from you.
