Swimming Timetable 2023-24


Whilst we understand that some of our pupils may already be able to swim 25m with confidence, our qualified swimming teachers will continue to refine technique and stamina. Furthermore, in line with our teaching and learning policy, pupils who are less competent swimmers are supported and encouraged by those whom are more proficient.
