The St John’s swimming team has gone from strength to strength in recent years and is very competitive. We run girls’ teams and boys’ teams for all age groups.
St John’s is currently in the process of building a new competition-standard six lane, 25m pool which will be ready for use in summer 2019. While the project is underway our pupils will be able to continue their swim training at Leatherhead Leisure Centre and we have strong links with Leatherhead Swimming Club for additional training opportunities. We have a number of qualified lifeguards/swimming coaches, who draw on a wealth of experience competing in the sport themselves.
In the 2017-18 academic year, the senior boys swept both wins at the Surrey Team Championships to win their place at English Nationals. Competing against the fastest teams in the country, they went on to secure fifth place nationally. At the Bath Cup, the girls and boys won their respective Dunelm and Aldenham cups, making St John's the first school to win the four cups at the Bath Cup and setting new records in the process.
In addition to fixtures, we have an annual sponsored swim, run an annual house swimming event and hold the occasional friendly water polo fixture. Both recreational and team standard swimmers are catered for in swimming sessions.
