Girls of all ages take full advantage of the indoor swimming pool. There are lunchtime clubs which enable girls to focus on improving swimmers' techniques and times. Girls compete in the inter-house swimming competition as well as inter-school events, such as the London Schools Swimming Gala. We are very lucky that our swimming pool has been recently refurbished and girls can make the most of the brand new space.
End of Season Report – Summer 2015
Lord Mayor’s City Dip:
This year we attended the sponsored swim for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal at Golden Lane Leisure Centre and girls from Year 7 swam a relay type event to raise money. Well done to Gaia Philimore, Ione Grammatikopoulos, Agni Hatzakis, Connie Bellass, Caitlin Carlos, Emma Brealey, Holly Hill, Gemma Thomson and Lou Fontaine.
Prep House Swimming:
This was held at City and all girls in the Prep Department represented their House in the gala. The atmosphere was fantastic! It was also really nice to see some of our outstanding swimmers perform. Overall results of the day were 4th place Tudor, 3rd place Fleet, 2nd place Ward and 1st place St.Bride.
In addition to swimming, City also offers water polo. It is considered one of the toughest and most physically demanding sports, requiring fast swimming, great physical strength and high cardiovascular stamina. During training sessions, held once a week after school, girls work on their hand-eye coordination, reflexes and handling and passing the ball.
We aim to play some friendly waterpolo fixtures whenever possible.
