Congratulations to 13 year old, Seni, Year D pupil, who achieved the highest pentathlon score by an U15 girl since Morgan Lake (the British high jumper who won the silver medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games) did it in 2010. Seni finished the season as fifth in class in the UK.

Angus Young, Head of Bryanston’s ‘Swim, Bike, Run’ programme, commented: "Seni's result is a reflection of all of the hard work and tough training sessions that she has worked through. This performance will inspire the rest of Team Bryanston to aim higher than ever before. Well done, Seni."
