Sports Stars

Tia and Elisha have been awarded the Tor Bridge High School Sport Tie for recognition in reaching an outstanding level in their chosen sports of swimming and gymnastics, respectively. Both Tia and Elisha have demonstrated excellent commitment and determination that has enabled them to attain such high standards.


Elisha represents Plymouth Swallows Gymnastics Elite Squad as well as representing Devon. Alongside Elisha’s studies, she trains 22 hours a week as well as inspiring future gymnastic stars in coaching. Elisha has competed in international competitions, the most recent being in Orlando, Florida, which was an amazing experience for her. Other competitions include the English Championships and British Team events. Elisha is well on her way to becoming a future coach and she is dedicated, resilient, mature and full of aspirations. 


Tia competes for Plymouth Leander, and is training with the Regional/National Age Group Squad. Just before lockdown Tia was about to compete in the South West Regionals Championships. Similar to Elisha, Tia trains for 14 hours each week on top of her school studies. Tia starts her training before school, some days starting at 5am. Weekends are committed to competing in various competitions and her determination to succeed is clear for all to see.


We will be following the sporting successes of these two wonderful students whose drive, determination and resilience has enabled them to reach top level sport. We wish them both all the success in the future.


We at Tor Bridge High want to celebrate the success of all students who demonstrate the attributes both Tia and Elisha have and would love to hear from students and celebrate with them.
