Here at Woodheys, we are committed to the promotion of swimming as an essential life skill for young people. Our pupils achieve very highly in swimming both in and out of school. 

Woodheys pupils have the opportunity to enhance their aquatic skills at Sale Leisure centre during their time in Year 4. Children are organised into ability groups and have the opportunity to work on both endurance and technique. Survival swimming is also part of the aquatic programme.


Swimming is a good sport because it helps you keep fit!
