Swim Test Details

The Military Swim Test will be held on the 4th February straight after school for all year nines, tens and anyone else who hasn't yet completed it. It will cost £1 to complete and once it is done, you will never have to do it again and it just makes it easy for us to sign you off as a swimmer for cadet activities (do not worry if you can't swim however, as you won't be prevented from doing activities in the future - you will be declared as a non-swimmer and may just require some extra supervision or safety measures).

The test itself is simple and involves you completing the following whilst dressed in light clothes over a swimming costume (such as PE kit or pyjamas):

  • treading water for 5 minutes
  • swimming 50 metres without touching the sides
  • getting out of the pool unaided

The test is done in groups of 6-8 and is very quick, so once you are done you can leave straight away. Any questions, please contact Major Reynolds
