Swimming is a key sport/activity for all of the boys and girls at Taunton. We are very fortunate in having two indoor swimming pools where both boys and girls are coached in swimming as part of the curriculum.
Every pupil swims for at least 2 activity blocks in their PE lessons. Both of our pools are heated, the TPS pool is 25m x 10m and the Keeling Pool has a depth ranging from 0.9m to 2.2m and a width of 10m.
All swimmers can enjoy swimming two evenings a week and able swimmers have access to the pool four mornings a week before school and during 2 lunchtimes.
Competitions entered include the Four Schools, IAPS, County and national cups. Each year we would expect to get at least one age group to the national swim finals.
