It's an excellent opportunity for boys and girls to mentally and physically challenge themselves; developing speed, strength, and stamina whilst working with a range of Olympic and Paralympic athletes over 1 to 5 days. (This can run in the summer holidays or as an after-school club before the school breaks up).

The academy would allow students to participate in 10 different athletics events, alongside classroom based, educational sports lessons. 

The academies would be run by Team GB athletes, who are very experienced and hugely enthusiastic. These athlete role models offer nothing but encouragement and help to create a competitive learning environment for children, where they will make friends, have fun, and be truly inspired.

School swimathon 2019 

School Swimathon is a swimming programme for primary school children, aimed at increasing swimming activity and supporting Swim England’s vision that every child should learn to swim before they leave primary school. Now in its seventh year, the programme is designed to sit alongside national curriculum swimming lessons and encourage children to swim their best.  


Taking place throughout the 2019 Spring Term, pupils take on an initial challenge in January and then use their weekly national curriculum swim lessons to improve their swim distance. Pupils will then try to swim further than ever before, in a final challenge at the end of the Spring Term!


Here is how School Swimathon 2018 helped pupils to swim their best:

  • 72% of children who took part improved their distance over the course of the spring term
  • 75% of children (2,724) swam 25m or more in their final challenge session - a huge improvement from 51% of children who could swim further than 25m in the initial session


Registration and access to online resources is free, including certificates to download and present to your pupils. There is a small £20 delivery fee for optional School Swimathon materials, including wall charts, limited edition swim caps and embroidered achievement badges.
