Sutton High School GDST and Sutton & Cheam Swimming Club have announced a partnership from September 2019.
The partnership means that Sutton High School’s pool will be open to boys and girls from the local area on weekday evenings and Saturday mornings, when the swimming club will hold lessons and training sessions.
(Pictured, from left: Dave Andrews and John Wileman, Vice President and Head of Development at Sutton & Cheam Swimming Club; Alexis Williamson-Jones, Director of Sport at Sutton High School; and Nubia A, school and club swimmer)Girls at Sutton High School will benefit from the club’s specialist coaches, access to new opportunities such as water polo and the chance to take part in a wider range of competitive galas.
Having been without a base in the borough for a number of years, Sutton & Cheam Swimming Club’s new home at Sutton High School will enable local young people to benefit from both outstanding training and facilities.
Director of Sport at Sutton High School, Alexis Williamson-Jones, said: “We are delighted to be working with Sutton & Cheam Swimming Club. They are one of the oldest and largest swimming clubs in the borough, their values closely match our own and they have a huge amount of experience and knowledge to offer.”
“This new venture will be a major boost to swimming in Sutton. It really excites us because of the opportunities that it will bring, not only to Sutton High girls but also to our partner schools and the wider community.”
