King's Community Swimming

As part of our overall swimming and aquatics development, 2017 will see the start of an exciting new venture for King’s. Enhancing our commitment to providing excellent services to our pupils, friends of King’s and members of the local community, we are pleased to launch the King’s Community Swimming.

The first part of this project will begin with the launch of the Community Learn to Swim Programme and King’s will provide high quality swimming lessons for local children.

Initially, lessons will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and will provide opportunities for children ages 4-11 to learn to swim, or further develop their skills.

As part of the community swimming brand, intensive courses for swimming, water polo, and synchronised swimming will be on offer during February half term.

Intensive courses will provide swimmers with an accelerated learning experience. Water polo and synchronised swimming sessions will also be on offer. Both sessions will provide swimmers with additional benefits that include increased speed, strength, endurance, and flexibility, teamwork and tactics.

For King’s pupils, throughout the year, various fitness swim sessions will be offered that provide new and innovative ways for pupils to enjoy the many benefits that swimming can bring.

Sixth Form pupils have the opportunity to gain their National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. This is an industry recognised qualification that gives pupils the skills and knowledge to perform the roles and responsibilities of a lifeguard. This includes the ability to affect a rescue, safely supervise a session, and provide first aid and CPR. This qualification is an excellent entry route into the leisure industry and a great opportunity for our pupils.
