St Edward's Catholic Primary School has swimming classes at Francis Holland

Partner: St Edward's Catholic Primary School, London
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

Every week we lend our indoor swimming pool to pupils from St Edward's Catholic Primary School. This is a local school which would not be able to offer swimming lessons without our support.

Aims of the project

To introduce primary aged children to swimming.

Background and goals

This is a long-standing partnership which has benefited in recent years from the refurbishment of our swimming pool.


Francis Holland School provides access to the pool and lifeguarding for the swimming lessons. This is a time and resources commitment.


There is a quantitative benefit here since countless pupils have taken advantage of this offer over the years.

Pupil involvement

Year 5 pupils.

Frequency and duration

Every week.
