Swimming at King's is currently taught in Years 3-6, although this is set to expand to include Infants through to the Seniors after our re-location to our new campus in Summer 2020. Our aim is to give each pupil a positive swimming experience with a view to encouraging competence and fostering a lifelong involvement in the activity.
Swimming is an important life skill and can help contribute to health, fitness and well-being. Swimmers are encouraged to consider the range of water sports and recreational activities available to a competent swimmer.
Life Saving and Survival Skills are part of the programme and pupils are taught to respect the swimming environment and consider their safety and the safety of others when in and around open water and supervised pool situations.
Competitive swimming opportunities are provided for all pupils via House Swimming Galas and stronger performers are given the opportunity to compete in inter-school competitions. King's has had success in the AJIS swimming competitions and local inter-school competitions in recent years.
