Alton School

Swimming

From Reception to Year 2 all of our pupils receive a 30-minute swimming lesson once a week for the whole school year. Years 3-6 receive a 30-minute swimming lesson once a week for the autumn and spring term. We run a yearly House Swimming Gala in the Prep School as well as compete in the ISA Regional Swimming event where pupils regularly get through to the Nationals at the Olympic Park Aquatics Centre. Once a term we also allow pupils to try water polo.

In the Senior School we participate in friendly galas and encourage all those who are interested. For our club swimmers we enter the ISA regional event which will then lead on to National qualification for some. We have had a lot of success in this with having pupils regularly qualifying for the Nationals where they often finish in the top three.
