With a 25 metre pool on site and a firm commitment to swimming on our curriculum, plus myriad clubs and the opportunity for recreational swimming, it is a key sport at the school. Swimming lessons are on rotation with PE and Dance in in the lower Senior School, meaning all students in Years 7 and 8 swim as part of their PE sessions over the year.
We run an elite squad and a development squad. Many WHS students swim at county and regional level, with the most talented performing at national level too. The sport requires aerobic fitness and core strength alongside the honing of excellent technique in the water. It's a sport for the dedicated, involving early morning and late night training sessions, and one where the level of competition is extremely high.
