Swimming

Swimming is a summer sport which takes place in the 1st and 4th Terms. The school has a heated 25 metre pool at the Prep School and all boys are encouraged to enter time trials at the beginning of the season. From these, coaches are able to assess particular needs and strengths of individual boys. The weaker swimmers are taught the basics with stroke correction in order to make them feel confident in the swimming pool. Boys are also encouraged to attend early morning training sessions to improve their fitness levels. Regular internal galas and inter school galas are held during the season, and there is an active group taking part in diving competitions.
