At The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, swimming is coached throughout the year groups as both in core PE lessons and co-curricular time
During their PE lessons all four key strokes are covered as well as skills such as diving. In the co-curricular sessions the School’s team of coaches, refine these skills further to maximise the boys’ abilities. These are supported by land training session with the School’s strength and conditioning coach in the fitness suite.
The School enters the Herts School’s Swimming League and routinely makes the final of this tournament. Year 7 and 8 boys also have the opportunity to compete in the London Independent School’s League. The boys also compete in the Divisional relay championships and have progressed from this into the national final in each of the last three seasons.
There is also an Inter-House swimming gala that takes place late in the spring term and brings together boys from all year groups competing in one of the highlights of the inter-house programme.
