Dear Parents and Carers


I am running swimming trials on the morning of Monday 13th January in order to select the school team for the Purley Swimming Gala on Thursday 30th January.

All children in Years 3 to 6 are invited to take part in the trials.  Children taking part will travel to and from Purley Pool by coach.

I will announce the names of the children who will swim in the Gala a few days after the trials have been completed.

Please note that under CSSA rules, it is ESSENTIAL that:

  • Your child MUST be able to swim 100 metres

(4 lengths of Purley Pool)

  • Your child MUST be a good swimmer 
  • Your child MUST be able to swim in deep water
  • Your child may start a race either in the water from the side of the pool or dive in (deep end only)
  • Lifeguards will be in attendance

I would appreciate offers from parents who would like to help with judging and timing the trials.


Meanwhile, please click here to complete the Google Form by Wednesday 8th January to give permission for your child to take part in the trials.

Yours sincerely
