Swimming

Having our own heated outdoor pool means that swimming is very popular at Belhaven. 

The pool is is in constant use throughout the Summer Term and for the first half of the Autumn Term when all children have swimming lessons as part of the P.E. curriculum. Children in the lower years at Belhaven have additional swimming lessons, usually on a Friday afternoon.

During the Autumn and Spring terms pupils not competing in matches often travel to a local pool for swimming lessons on Wednesday afternoons.

The school takes part of a number of competitive swimming galas over the course of the year but a highlight of the swimming year at Belhaven Hill is the internal Belhaven Hill Swimming Gala and Diving Cup. Every pupil in the school has the opportunity to take part in time trials and diving heats with the whole school providing an audience for the finals.
