Our swimming philosophy at Eaton Square Senior School is based on recognising that each pupil in our school has a different internal motivation to practise this sport and the passion for swimming and teaching from our staff. Our main reasons to teach swimming in our school are:

  • Swim or sink: Providing our pupils with a life skill that can safe their lives when being in and around the water.
  • Swimming FUNdamentals: Learning how to swim accurately by using a fun swimming approach in order to help pupils to build a life-long swimming habit.
  • Different motivations: Having a varied swimming programme that tailors pupils’ interest (love of the sport, friendship, challenge themselves, chase their dreams, realise and discover their potential)
  • Everyone is welcome: No matter what the level of swimming performance is, there will be a space for every pupil so that they can reach their best version. Teachers from other departments will work closely to develop cross curricular projects.
  • Swimming as an educational tool: Learning actively about values such as respect, teamwork, hard work, discipline, punctuality and resilience; and having the opportunity to deal with success and failure.
  • Physical and mental health: Using their creativity to develop new ways of movement and play in the pool as well as becoming aware of their own bodies and thoughts when swimming.
