As well as regular swimming lessons, which take place during core PE lessons and as a senior games option, pupils can use the school’s large indoor swimming pool for leisure swimming.

Keen swimmers join the school squad training on three evenings a week throughout the year, coached by former GB Paralympian, Ryan Crouch, and they regularly participate in local and national swimming galas.

Senior pupils can apply to train ‘in-house’ for the NPLQ award to become a qualified lifeguard and can then work at the school to supervise swimming sessions.
