Big School Swim 2017

As partners of Everyone Active, SwimStars will be taking part in their annual celebration of school swimming, The Big School Swim.

Organised by Swim England, this event saw 160 primary schools and 4,800 children across the country join in last year, sharing photos and stories about their experience of school swimming.

We're engaging schools that follow the SwimStars programme and share our belief that teaching children to swim before they leave primary school is an essential life skill.

To thank schools for helping us in our mission to create swimming opportunities for all, we're offering pupils the chance to take part in our SwimStars School Competition!

Visit the Big School Swim page to find out how you can get involved.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting about the event on our website and across our social media so if you would like to join in and would be happy for us to share your photos, please do get involved.

In the past, we’ve had photos sent in of classes creating their masterpieces, quotes from children explaining their designs, and videos of school assemblies discussing the importance of school swimming – but please feel free to take part in any way you like, and use the hashtag below when posting on social media!
