The Big School Swim

The next Big School Swim takes place from 12-16 November 2018, with schools and swimming pools across the country joining 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, (Wednesday, 8 November 2017) over 215 primary schools and 7,000 children across the country joined in, sharing photos and stories about their experience. This year we want to make it even bigger and better.

Registration for the Big School Swim

Registration for this year’s event has now closed.

If you pre-registered your details, we’ll keep you updated with information about 2019. Dates for 2019 will be announced in due course.

Can secondary schools take part?

The resources for the Big School Swim are aimed at primary schools delivering curriculum swimming and water safety lessons. But don’t let that stop you. If your students are enjoying time in the water during term time – then feel free to get involved, we’d love to hear from you.
