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 and the National Bazooka Competition.
2012 - 2013
The U12 team is an up-and-coming team showing great potential. The combined team of Years 7 & 8 came 4th at the Highgate Swimming Gala, competing against both girls and boys. The Prep teams won the London Schools Primary Schools Gala in January 2013 and several girls have been selected to swim at the London Youth Games in July.
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 during lunchtimes, girls work on their hand-eye coordination, reflexes and handling and passing the ball.
The School's Diving Club is a popular club, as they transfer skills from gymnastics, trampolining and dancing to both the springboard and tower. Girls from all ages and abilities are welcome to participate and top performing students are often selected to compete in competitions such as the London Youth Games.
