Our swimming programme in the Junior School has expanded significantly in the last year. Every child swims during the school year as part of our Sports Fitness carousel of activities. Our most confident swimmers are invited to join our Swim Squad sessions, which run before and after school.
This allows us to compete at a high level locally and nationally. Our Year 6 boys and girls relay teams both qualified for the National Finals in Sheffield. For those who find swimming a little harder, we offer targeted catch up sessions, where children can work on their stroke and stamina with the help of a team of well qualified swimming coaches. Like all other sports, every child in the Upper Juniors will represent their house in a fun and noisy House Swimming Gala.
At the Croydon Schools Swim Gala Qualifier, we won Best Boys’ Team, Best Girls’ Team and Best Team Overall! In the LLSA Swim Finals, Dylan came 4th in Freestyle and Lorenzo came 5th in Backstroke. In the Sutton Girls’ Swimming Gala, we gained many 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and were crowned Overall Winners! Individually, congratulations to Zac for qualifying to the IAPS National Swim Finals.
