A student making a splash at Tibshelf Community School is Joshua Leeson, of Year Seven.

A member of Sutton-in-Ashfield Swimming Club, Joshua has won a prestigious award at the annual Derbyshire Schools Sports Awards at Chesterfield’s Proact Stadium.

Joshua won the 2014 Derbyshire Primary Schools Sports Award for his achievements in the swimming pool.

Joshua joined Sutton Swimming Club in late 2012 and did not qualify for any individual events in the 2013 Nottinghamshire County Championships.

However, in May 2014, the Tibshelf pupil demonstrated extraordinary improvement when he swam in seven events, recording seven personal best times and winning trophies for each event.
