Exeter School announces partnership with Exeter Swimming Club

Junior Performance, Competitive Fitness and Masters swimming squads

Exeter School is delighted to announce a new partnership with Exeter Swimming Club.

The leading co-educational day school for 7-18 year-olds is opening the doors of its new indoor pool to enable the Club’s swimmers to train every week.

Members of the Junior Performance, Competitive Fitness and Masters swimming squads will use the indoor swimming pool five days a week to train for competitions across the country.

Chair of Exeter Swimming Club Dean Drury said he was very grateful to Exeter School for the opportunity to use the pool.

“It is great to be able to expand our swimming provision by linking in with Exeter School,” he said.

Head Coach Jo John said: “Exeter Swimming Club has grown massively over the last few years and access to Exeter School’s pool gives us the opportunity to make the progression we needed to as a club.”

Master in Charge of Swimming at Exeter School Gary Robb said: “We are happy to welcome young people from across the county to train with Exeter Swimming Club in our swimming pool. These links will only help strengthen the sport at the School.”

Director of Sport Andy Mason said: “The inauguration of the new pool in June 2017 marked the completion of an extensive Sports department build that includes a new fitness suite and free weights room, new indoor rifle range and studio area as well as new changing rooms. Working in partnership with Exeter Swimming Club complements our swimming provision for five Exeter primary schools whose pupils receive swimming lessons, taught and lifeguarded by Exeter School staff, as well as the transport to and from the pool, all free of charge.”

As part of the partnership, Exeter School’s Sixth Formers will be lifeguarding for the Club’s training sessions every evening.
