Cottesmore School




The School has a fantastic facility for swimming. The 20m indoor heated pool provides the opportunity for training throughout the year and encourages the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle through aquatic pursuits. Swimming, teaching, water polo, scuba diving, canoeing and lifesaving are just some of the regular activities taking place here.

Cottesmore offers swimming lessons for all, from non-swimmers to advanced levels, teaching a wide range of skills. These include diving, water safety, survival skills and speed and stamina training, whilst following the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway.

Regular Time Trials are held to encourage development; these lead to the nationally standardised ASA Speed Awards, which are regularly achieved.

All instructors are experienced ASA-qualified teachers and follow the ethos of the school in promoting excellence, ensuring each child reaches their full potential whilst, most importantly, making sure each child is happy and safe in the water.
