Swimming pool


We are passionate about school swimming and believe in giving children the opportunity to learn to swim, giving them the skills to stay safe near water.


All year groups participate in lessons in the school swimming pool.


The lessons are provided by fully qualified swimming teachers, supported by an amazing team of staff and volunteers to ensure safety at all times.


There is no cost for the swimming lessons. Children will need a swimming costume/trunks and a towel.


Whether your child is a complete beginner all abilities are catered for in a safe and enjoyable environment. If you have any further questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
