Woodhouse Primary School is extremely fortunate to have its own swimming pool and two excellent, highly-qualified swimming instructors. Mrs Sutcliffe is a former GB swimmer and is the Team Manager for the Swim England Youth Team which has travelled to various countries to compete in a variety of competitions. Mrs Hughes is a former Junior GB swimmer and is the coach to the GB Artistic Swimmers (previously known as Synchronised Swimming) and is also the Head Coach for the City of Bradford Artistic Swimming Club, who are currently the National Champions.

Some of our Woodhouse children have also had the opportunity to take part in an after school Synchronised Swimming Club which has been run by Mrs Hughes with Mrs Wring-Skinner volunteering as a Stand Back Observer.

Water Safety

Water Safety is also taught throughout the children’s swimming lessons. This is an important life-saving skill to learn, as there are many waterways around Brighouse, and our children need to know how to stay safe around any type of water.

The RNLI's Seaside Safety Song

The RNLI's Seaside Safety Song is a catchy tune designed to help children enjoy the beach safely while having fun.
