Connor plays for Sedgefield Water Polo Club and also Leeds National League side.  He has been selected by England u17 and has been to several European Counties for training camps and games.  Connor is an outstanding athlete who has taken part in water polo since the age of 6.

Mr Johnson, Director of Sport at Bishop Barrington said: "Connor is true inspiration to our students.  He displays real resilience and hard work and deserves all his success.  He is a very quiet and humble young man but once in the pool, he is a true competitor and gives everything to win.  Connor has been a part of our Elite Sports Academy and we work closely with his parents to ensure his sporting dreams are in line with his academic targets".
