Swimming is taught as part of the curriculum from Years 1- 4. The programme includes water confidence and skills, stroke development and personal survival. A range of ASA graded awards are worked towards in recognition of the achievement of prescribed standards of performance and to encourage the improvement of swimming. A range of interhouse, interschool and regional swim galas provide exciting opportunities for those in Year 3 - 6 who are keen to race against their peers and represent their House or School. A swimming club is run for Years 3 - 6 and may be either inclusive or one where pupils swim in a competitive environment and prepare for swim galas against other schools. Pupils are selected for this club through a time trial.
