Talbot Heath School Swimming Pathway
This is a before and after school swimming group for
Talbot Heath pupils that have reached the criteria listed
• 25m Front crawl with breathing technique
• 25m Back crawl
• 10m Breaststroke kick showing correct technique
• 10m Butterfly kick showing correct technique
• Can perform a forward roll
• Be confident in deep water
• Shower, changing, brushing hair independently from parent/adult supervision and preparation for the school day.
The Pathway will provide a progressive route to develop competitive and fitness swimming. Talbot Heath have enjoyed seeing swimmers, triathletes, lifesavers, and biathletes achieve county, regional, national and international success in recent years.
Pathway pupils may earn selection for School teams that compete in Regional and National IAPS (Independent Association of Preparatory Schools), ISA (Independent Schools Association), ESSA (English Schools Swimming Association) and local school galas.
The Talbot Heath School Pathway is directed and coached by British Swimming and Poole Swimming Club Head Coach Barry Alldrick and his team of coaches. We are partnered with Poole Swimming Club, where many pupils join to compete more widely with a club from novice to International level (outside of school competitions).
The Pathway starts for pupils in Year 3 all the way through to Year 13, from Year 7 this is branded as a Swimming Academy. Pupils in Year 2 can apply to join the pathway in the Summer Term but this must be approved by Mrs Pugh.
