Swimming Tuition with West Wimbledon Primary School

Five Wimbledon High staff secondees aim to help raise student attainment, inspire and give confidence to the children from West Wimbledon primary school via weekly swimming lessons. Free of charge to our partner school, the Year 4 students come to the WHS swimming pool and receive hour of expert tuition per week for the entire year.

 

“The children are all really enjoying their swimming sessions. Care has been taken to find about our SEND children and they are provided with targeted support. The children are so happy, including the new swimmers who are all showing confidence to take part. There has been nothing but praise, from the staff and they report that all the children are making progress” - Deputy Head of School, West Wimbledon
