The Jackson Pool

 The Priory Academy LSST recognises the importance of aquatics as being life skills that will ultimately enrich our students’ lives beyond their time at school.


During KS3, particular focus is given to developing fundamental swimming skills, water safety, lifesaving and personal survival skills.  In addition, games such as water polo, water volleyball and even the basic skills of kayaking and canoeing are explored.

All the activities are led by our own qualified and experienced swimming coach and lifeguard. 


Competitive Swimming

The Priory Academy LSST supports and encourages competitive swimming as competitive swimmers learn lifelong skills such as effective time management, dedication and goal setting – all of which transfer to successful adult life.  We have a fantastic record of regularly reaching the ESSA National Finals which means we have teams in the top 20 in the country.  These National finals are held in London and the teams compete at the Aquatic Centre in the Olympic Pool.
