We have a heated indoor swimming pool where expert coaching is provided by former Olympic coach Gary Vandermeulen through the Sheppard Swim School which he jointly runs with his wife Alison Sheppard MBE, Scotland's most successful female swimmer. Gary and his team coach both our competitive teams and those pupils who just want to improve their general swimming ability.
Aquatic activities are available on the daily games programme, with specific training for team swimmers on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the first two terms.
