We regard swimming as both an important life skill and a great source of enjoyment. Girls participate in swimming lessons from Reception onwards and most are accomplished swimmers by the time they leave St Ives.
The School has a long tradition of nurturing strong talent at swimming. Those who show particular promise are invited to join the school swimming squad and regularly compete in inter-school galas. Many girls are also members of the Haslemere Swimming Club, competing at county and regional level. We regularly compete at IAPS regional and national level, often with great success.
