Durham School, part of the Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation, is pleased to announce a summer swimming course exclusively for primary school pupils from local state schools. The course will take place between Monday 2 August and Friday 6 August 2021 in its pool on Quarryheads Lane, Durham.

The programme, organised by Head of Swimming at Durham School, Mrs Naomi Fordyce, has already proved a great success with over half of the 50 places being taken up in the first 24 hours. 48 spaces are available for children in ages 4-11 across four session times 12.30, 1pm, 1.30pm and 2pm. There is a £5 cover charge for each booking, which works out at no more than £1 a session.

 

Durham School have not sought external funding for the project. Naomi said, “At Durham School, we share the values of Moral Integrity, Ambition, Responsibility and Kindness. It seemed to those of us involved with swimming courses here that there was a real need to help kids who have missed out on learning to swim. We can’t solve the problem but by offering four, five-day, half hour programmes, we hope to do our bit.”

 

These learn to swim sessions are part of a wider programme of summer activities, including 1-2-1 swimming lessons and “Summer Fun” course. For more information and to book please visit www.durhamschool.co.uk/courses
