We suggest children wear their swim costume underneath their uniform. 


Please ensure your child has the following items in their swim bag; 


- A towel

- Under garments (underwear/ knickers) to put on after their swim lesson 


All children must wear appropriate swimwear. For girls this would be a swimming costume, one or two piece. (No bikinis please). Boys can either wear swimming trunks or fitted swimming shorts that are above the knee and do not inhibit movement.


Jewellery should be removed unless consent has been provided concerning the wearing of jewellery for cultural and religious reasons. Long hair must be tied back. Swimming hats are encouraged for hygiene and may help keep long hair as dry as possible. 





A note giving permission for your child to wear goggles is needed for school swim lessons. 


Please note that even though consent may have been given, the swimming teacher still reserves the right to ask the child to remove their goggles or jewellery should they have a justified reason for doing so.



If you have any concerns or queries, please contact the school office/ email/ phone us.
