GCSEs Have Changed
GCSEs have changed. For most subjects, results are now graded 9 to 1 instead of the old A* to G. Some of those subjects that have been updated include maths, English language and sciences. The new GCSEs have been reformed to cover more challenging content to ensure students are better prepared for the world of work and further study. Colleges, universities and employers will continue to set their own entry criteria. To find out more about the new GCSEs and what the changes mean, visit https://newgcses.campaign.gov.uk/

Technique session - open water swimming
Part of a one hour lake swim coaching session. First part Colin Hill is on the water with the swimmer for an initial assessment, watching their stroke and giving demonstrations. Then he's in a boat next to the swimmer and they go for a long swim , where they focus on different areas of the stroke. As Colin mentions, for long distance swimming, try and get the stroke as efficient as possible. It takes time and practice, but it’s good to have some key things to think about in training.
