We swim at the Oratory School Pool in Woodcote and also at the Oratory Prep School Pool at Goring Heath both near the South Oxfordshire Village of Woodcote.

We teach children from beginners to advanced swimmers in small friendly groups, enabling us to teach each child individually.

The lessons run during the school year with regular assessments for awards. Our children work towards ASA awards, covering the following skills:

Stroke Technique


Personal Survival



The children also learn skills in Life Saving and Water Polo.

The Oratory Pool

Woodcote Swimming Club is affiliated to the ASA. All our teachers are ASA qualified and hold the current National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches.

The Club ensures that all staff hold a DBS certificate.
