The Radley College 25m swimming pool and adjoining 3.5m diving pit offer boys the chance to swim for their extra-curricular sports option.

During the average Radley week there are opportunities to swim on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Saturday afternoons. The annual Inter-Social Swimming competitions are very popular in Radley.

During the Summer term our swimmers have a break from the indoor pool and train on the Thames in preparation for the prestigious Henley Swim.

The pictures below illustrate the open water swimming events during the summer of 2015.

Competing in the Henley swim from left to right: Andy Thomas, Sholto Hanson, Guy Walker, Arran Ryder, Tom Ryder and Georgina Hammond.

Swimming Sports Pathway

  • During the Michaelmas and Lent Terms there are swimming training sessions 4 times a week.
  • In the Summer Term these continue, and some boys take part in open water swimming (for example the Henley Swim).
  • If boys are training for particular swimming or triathlon events, they can attend the regular swimming sessions.
  • During the year there are some opportunities to represent the school in galas.
