St Peter's School

Swimming

Pool

The School has its own indoor-heated swimming pool within the school grounds which is open to use by pupils and staff. Opened in September 2011 by Olympic diver Tom Daley, this brand new, state-of-the-art, 25m six lane pool was built on the site of the existing pool.

Swimming is an option for all boys from Third Form, and early morning training sessions are also run twice a week. The School has an excellent link with York City Swimming Club who use the school swimming pool for training every day and weekends. Any talented swimmers are encouraged to join York City Swimming Club to take advantage of the coaches and competition they offer.
