Swimming

We are very fortunate to have an excellent swimming facility with an indoor 25m swimming pool on campus.  This makes it very easy for us to teach swimming as part of our PE classes, with lessons starting from Prep 1.  Pupils are accompanied into the pool by qualified swimming teachers and Form VI pupils who have their lifeguard qualification.

nullWe also have a school swimming club, which runs over our autumn and spring term and is open to Prep and Junior pupils who can already swim and is well attended by all ages and abilities. This activity takes place in our 25m school swimming pool and caters for those wishing to swim competitively, as well as those who want to improve stroke technique and fitness. Pupils are involved in sprint training, speed and endurance programmes, and starts, turns, diving and change over techniques. 

Swimmers have the opportunity to represent the school in galas against other schools, as well as being selected to swim at Central and Scottish Schools events.
