Swimming Pool 22.5 x 9m

 PE / Swimming

Here at Salendine Nook we are lucky enough to have our own Swimming Pool, which is used 50% of the week for SNHS pupils. All sessions are delivered in a safe, learner friendly environment. Not only do pupils learn a lifesaving skill or improve the skills they already have; the aquatic curriculum allows for a broad range of topics and disciplines to be explored and developed within the physical education (PE) framework.

Core PE in Year 7 develops pupils’ stroke techniques and speed swimming, including types of fitness emphasising the importance of healthily lifestyles and gaining insight into GCSE PE language. Gifted and talented swimmers have the opportunity to represent their forms in an annual Year 7 inter-form gala held in the Summer term. In year 8 the focus is on Personal Survival within a real life context and Water Polo is experienced using various drills and skills leading to modified invasion games.

If pupils opt for Swimming as part of core PE in year 10 and 11 the previously taught topics can be explored further, and or pupils can undertake a nationally recognised program of study in Lifesaving and First Aid. This is an ideal pre-requisite for pupils wishing to embark on a Lifeguard qualification upon leaving school.

Throughout the year there are opportunities for pupils to be selected to represent the school at an annual year 7 and year 8 Inter-school swimming gala hosted at our pool. In addition time trials are also held once a year to select a swimming team to represent the school in the English Schools Swimming Championships held at various sites within Yorkshire.

Enrichment sessions are made available twice a week for pupils wishing to accelerate their progress, become more confident, top-up GCSE skills or simply keep fit.


Enrichment Sessions

Enrichment sessions are Wednesday mornings 8.05-9.05am (gifted and talented swim team) and Monday (any ability) 3.15-4pm. Both sessions are for any year group.


The pool is also used by primary schools in the catchment area as well as the pupils of SNHS. During evenings and weekends the pool is hired out by SPIE to private swim schools in the local area.
