Year 7 Swimming Scheme

Year 7 Swimming Scheme

Marlow is a river-side town and the river brings much pleasure to both residents and visitors. However, the River Thames, like all rivers, has to be treated with respect, too, because it can be dangerous to swim in. Figures published by the National Water Safety Forum (NWSF) reveal that 321 people lost their lives in accidental drownings in the UK in 2015. The figures also show that the majority of those who died did not intend to be in the water.

GMS began a scheme in September 2015 to improve the skill and confidence of non-swimmers and weak swimmers in the water. Students involved in the scheme also participated in water safety and survival skills. We are delighted with the progress made by the students who have participated. Also, we thank the staff and others, who have given up their time to facilitate this important enterprise.
