Swimming

Mount Kelly Prep is very lucky to have a beautifully positioned outdoor heated swimming pool. 

The boarders take full advantage of the long summer evenings to have a quick dip during the working week. Whilst at weekends they and the staff enjoy BBQs and swimming fun-days.

Swimming lessons take place in the indoor pool at the College where we focus on swimming style, stroke and breathing techniques in conjunction with enjoyment and play. Children are observed to ascertain their individual needs. Although the range of abilities can be varied, we always ensure that every child is taught to stay safe, but to try their very best at all times.

Each year we hold an Inter-House Swimming Gala with every child taking part. Parents attend to cheer on and support all the children.

The 25m indoor pool at the College is home to Mount Kelly Swimming the internationally known elite training programme led by former Olympian, Robin Brew. The Development Squad is for our younger and less experienced swimmers who are given the opportunity to train with professional coaches and to begin to compete at local, regional and national levels.
