At Henry Cavendish all children in KS2 have weekly swimming lessons all year round. Years 3 and 4 swim at the swimming pool located at our Balham site and are taught by our swimming instructor, Miss Palmer. Years 5 and 6 progress on to swimming at Streatham Leisure Centre, a 25m pool which enables the children to work on distance swimming and deep water skills.

At Henry Cavendish swimming is acknowledged as both an important life skill and a fun, competitive sport. We enjoy taking part in both inter class and inter school swimming galas and are proud to be Lambeth school’s Swimming Champions for the last 2 years running.
