Swimming

Pupils from Reception to Form 8 have a weekly swimming lesson during the summer term. Pre-prep pupils are taught by the staff of Galashiels Swimming Pool.

The Pre-prep talk about codes of hygiene and courtesy in the pool environment. They gain in confidence within the pool; work on floatation, propulsion and basic strokes. Simple games are played at the end of session.

The Middle School, taught by our own P.E. and Games staff, work on stroke technique and basic water safety principles whilst the Upper School learn survival principles, strategies and skills. Pupils are continually assessed in the pool and work towards an annual gala at the end of June.

All pupils F3-8 take part in the Swimming Gala and it has become an increasingly popular event with pupils and parents alike.
