Get involved with the Big School Swim

The last Big School Swim took place on Wednesday 8 November 2017, 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, 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.

Register your interest for the next Big School Swim 12-16 November 2018

Primary Schools and pool operators running school swimming lessons can register below so we can keep you up-to-date about our next Big School Swim, which will run 12-16 November 2018.

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.
