Danegrove children go swimming during Year 5.


Swimming lessons are held on a Friday afternoon at New Barnet Leisure Centre.  Pupils walk there in groups accompanied by school staff. We welcome parents who are able to walk with the groups. Please contact the office if you are able to help.


Lessons are 30 minutes long and run by one of the Leisure Centress swimming teachers.


Pupils change in single-sex changing rooms and the lesson is observed by Danegrove  staff.


There is no school uniform for swimming but pupils are asked to wear sensible costumes (not bikinis) and trunks. Swimming hats are compulsory and goggles are optional. Swimming kits should be taken home after each lesson.


There is no cost to parents for swimming lessons.
