Mayfield's Swimming SuccessPosted on: 25/04/2019
Swimming lessons have been a new addition to the PE curriculum at Mayfield. All pupils in Years 7 and 8 are given the opportunity to have swimming lessons in the Mayfield Leisure Centre's pool.
Pupils have a maximum of eight swimming lessons, with the final lesson being their assessment. Depending on their ability, pupils try to swim as far as they can using different strokes.
Alice and Niharika in Year 7 have been the only two pupils so far to reach the highest level. They managed to swim 100m, 400m, 800m and 1500m, and demonstrated a range of water skills. Alice also achieved 1600m.
Our swimming coach was very impressed with these girls and they should both be proud of what they have achieved.
We hope they continue to swim during their free time to keep up the excellent work. Well done girls!
