St George's Hanover Square Primary School has swimming classes at Francis Holland

Every week, pupils from St George's School come to Francis Holland with their teacher to take swimming lessons in our pool.

Aims

To introduce primary-aged children to swimming and to promote a lifelong love of the sport alongside a healthy lifestyle.

Background

This is a long-standing project which has benefited recently from the complete refurbishment of our swimming pool.

Resources

We provide the pool and also swimming teaching to the school since St George's does not have a qualified coach. This is a commitment of teaching time, preparation time aswell as physical resources.

Impact

There is a qualitative outcome for the girls and boys from St George's School. The ability to swim is on the decline nationally and Francis Holland School is playing its part to support swimming.

Pupil Involvement

Year 5.

Frequency

Every week.
