The academy has a heated outdoor learning pool, and is used by all classes in the Summer term. We employ fully qualified swimming teachers. The heating and tuition costs are funded by voluntary parental contributions. We feel that this is an excellent facility and take pride in the fact that almost all Year 6 children leave the academy as able swimmers. We hope that parents continue to support this initiative.
