In the Summer Term, our outdoor heated pool provides a popular facility amongst our children for the learning of swimming techniques, personal survival and life-saving skills. Matches against local schools take place at King's College in the indoor 25-metre pool, but we still have some matches for younger children in our outdoor pool.
The inter-house swimming competition at King's College takes place at the end of the Summer Term and is the highlight of the swimming fixture list. Nearly every child swims for their house team, and the enthusiastic vocal support from parents and competitors is always deafening.
Swimming is offered as part of PE and our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children each have a half term of swimming at King’s College. Swimming staff work across both schools and are able to spend more time at King's Prep during the Summer Term.
