All pupils in Years 2 to 4 at The Hills Academy go swimming weekly throughout the academic year. In the Summer Term Year 1 starts swimming. All of these lessons are run by a team of qualified coaches employed by the school at a privately hired local pool.
Year 5 pupils swim for the Autumn term and then in the Summer Term these pupils complete an intensive personal survival swimming course.
In the current Year 4, 5 and 6 all pupils are able to swim 25+ metres unaided.
