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.
2013 - 2014
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 November 2013 the Year 7 & 8 Swimming teams won the London League gala at Highgate and go through to the finals in February 2014.
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.
This year the water polo team is currently undefeated!
