Get involved with the Big School Swim

The Big School Swim returns on Wednesday 8 November 2017. We want schools and swimming pools across the country to join us to celebrate swimming!

What is the Big School Swim?

The Big School Swim is an annual event that celebrates swimming in schools. It is a great opportunity for you and your pupils to celebrate the fun – and importance – of learning how to swim and learning about water safety.

Last year, over 160 primary schools and 4,800 children across the country joined in, sharing photos and stories about their experience.

Pool and classroom resources are being developed to help schools and swimming pools on the day.

In addition, we are creating marketing posters, social media graphics and other materials to help you to further spread the message.

Primary Schools can sign up below to receive these resources before the event.
