Swimming plays an important role in the life of a Moira House student. We have very strong team of qualified teachers, excellent facilities and some very talented swimmers. Girls compete in local, regional, and national competitions. Our 25-metre indoor heated pool is also open to the public for lessons, parties and lots of swimming fun.
In addition to their regular weekly one hour swimming lessons, the junior swimming squad trains up to 5 hours per week and the senior squad 8 hours per week. We believe we have the right balance of training for the appropriate age groups. Moira House Girls are very successful in all levels of competition, notably their biggest success was to win the IAPS Schools Relay. A fantastic achievement for both the girls and their coaches.
The pool is open to the public for after school swimming lessons. Our ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) qualified teachers run classes for all ages and swimming abilities from non-swimmers to pre competition level. This year’s Swim School dates are available to download below and in the download section of this website.
During the Easter and Summer holidays our experienced swimming teachers run an intensive swim school. The course ensures progression from beginners through to advanced techniques for both boys and girls, working towards National Swim Awards under the ASA regulations. Please use the links below to download a booking form.
We work closely with all the local primary schools, and so children within the community enjoy using our excellent facilities to learn to swim.
