Swimming is one of the school’s focus sports and is taught from ages 4-18.
The swimming programme is led by our Director of Swimming, Mrs Helen Dudman, who has considerable experience working with beginners to national level swimmers. She is supported by a strong team of specialist swimming coaches, swimming teachers and members of the sports department. Swimming is delivered in our excellent 25 metre swimming pool with its overhanging viewing gallery.
All pupils up until Year 8 have one swimming lesson per week during which they build their confidence in the water, through to stroke technique, and then into squad training for competition.
More able swimmers join the swim squads which train and compete before and after school as part of the school’s excellent co-curricular programme.
The school has strong relationships with all local clubs to ensure a smooth pathway into competitive swimming for those who wish to develop their swimming further and we currently have a good cross-section of regional swimmers training in our four squads.
In January 2020, the Radnor Swimming swim school commenced with an experienced team of swimming teachers and coaches offering pupils after school lessons to accommodate all their needs from learning to swim right through to competition starts, turns and stroke technique. We are a registered Swim England swim school using their leading national teaching syllabus for delivering safe, inclusive and effective lessons for all ages.
