Twickenham Academy's Crew 'The Tridents' row in The Great River Race

The Great River Race took place on Saturday 27th September and Twickenham Academy’s very own crew completed the 21.6 mile course from Millwall to Ham in the very respectable time of 2hrs and 53 minutes giving them a finish position of 213 from over 350 boats!

The 10 GGCSE PE students who are the Twickenham Academy crew earned their place in the race having been crowned champions of the first Richmond Borough Rowing Regatta in July this year. The particpation in this event sees an end to many long sessions of training and all the crew received a wonderful applause from fellow Academy friends for such a great acheivement. Congratulations!
