Swimming and Water Safety in Schools


Win a fantastic trip to Alton Towers Waterpark for your primary school!

Taking part in The Big School Swim 2019 means a fantastic chance to win a school ‘reward’ trip for up to 35 pupils (and their teachers*) to the Alton Towers Waterpark, including return coach transportation.

The park boasts lots of fantastic interactive water features. Pupils can star float down the lazy rivers, get soaked with crazy cannons, and brave the sensational speed of the Master Blaster water coaster.

The wet and wild waterpark is open all year round*, offering bucket-loads of fun for your pupils.

The indoor waterpark is home to fabulous water slides and interactive play areas. And in the summer months, Alton’s water park extends to an outdoor pool area where pupils can enjoy the Bubbly Wubbly bubble pool and Flash Floods flume ride in the sunshine.
