Free swimming lessons for Year 7 students

Free swimming lessons are being offered to Year 7 students throughout the summer term.

The sessions will take place in the pool at Penn Fields School and will be run by trained staff from Highfields.

They are open to students who have not yet learnt to swim and, numbers permitting, students who lack confidence in the water.

Sessions will take place from Monday May 9 to Friday July 22. They will run before school between 7.55am and 8.45am and after school between 3.30pm and 4.20pm.

Ms T. Lee, Acting Head of Girls PE, said: "We feel that the ability to swim is a very important skill that not only allows a child to experience the fun aspects of water but also could potentially save their life if ever they got into difficulty."

Lessons will involve no more than 10 students with at least two members of staff present at all times.
