At Garden House, swimming is part of the Curriculum from Year 1 all the way through to Year 6. We believe that swimming is an essential life skill and therefore our Curriculum includes water confidence, stroke development and personal survival skills.
To encourage and recognise progression, pupils can achieve both ASA and GHS Swimming Awards during school lessons.
Every pupil has the opportunity to represent their House in an annual Interhouse Swimming Gala and for those children in Year 2-6 that would like to have an extra swimming lesson, a School Swimming Club is available.
A School Swimming Squad is run for pupils in Year 2-6. The squad allows children to swim in a competitive environment and prepare for regional or School swimming galas. Pupils are selected for this squad through a time trial. In recent years, Garden House have finished third in the London League grand final and been crowned the U10 girls National IAPS champions.
