Training to swim competitively at a national or international level alongside the academic demands needed to achieve the highest grades requires great commitment. Former pupil, Daniah Hagul, successfully achieved this balance when she represented Libya in the 100 metre breaststroke at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games in 2016, whilst studying for her A Levels.
The training programme at Mount Kelly is designed to ensure our swimmers can realise their full potential in the pool and, equally importantly, to capitalise on the academic benefits that have been proved to accrue from their training programmes. The discipline and self-motivation of swimmers contributes to a positive work ethic for all our pupils and the School day is carefully structured to support the needs of everyone whether it be in the pool, in the orchestra, hiking on the moor, on the sports pitch or on the stage.
