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

Partner: St George's Hanover Square CofE Primary School, London
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

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

Aims of the project

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

Background and goals

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


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.


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 and duration

Every week.
