Swimming - Hurstpierpoint College



Swimming is a popular sport at Hurst and, due to its growth in popularity in recent years, swimming is now offered as a year-round sport. In addition to the training offered during games sessions, early morning coaching sessions are also available.

Fixtures and tournaments

Galas take place throughout the school year, usually on Thursdays and Saturdays, and our teams compete in both inter-school and national competitions. Our swimming squads have a strong reputation across Sussex, through their successes at the Sussex Cup, ESSA Nationals and Bath Cup, and they are always highly ranked at events.

Water Polo

Every year we hold inter-house boys’ and girls’ Water Polo competitions, which are held in the College pool, and are enjoyable and well-supported events in the school calendar.

Hurst swimming poolFacilities

Hurst has an indoor heated 25m (4 lanes) swimming pool on site.

The Senior School girls’ team remain unbeaten at inter-school galas over the past couple of years and the boys’ swimming team is now one of the strongest in recent times. Anthony Gray, Master-in-Charge of Swimming
