About Us

Our Club...

We swim at the Oratory School Pool at Woodcote and also the Oratory Prep School Pools at nearby Goring Heath.

Woodcote Swimming Club was established 31 years ago for the benefit of children living in Woodcote and the surrounding South Oxfordshire villages of Goring & Streatley, Wallingford, Checkendon, Cholsey, South Stoke, Stoke Row and Sonning Common. We are a not for profit club, committed to encouraging children to excel at swimming.

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

Most of our swimmers stay with us until they are advanced swimmers, gaining their Bronze, Silver and Gold Challenge Awards; some even achieve the top award - Honours Challenge. We now have some of our past pupils bringing their children to us for lessons, which is great to know they enjoyed their time with us so much!

Our teachers have been with us for many years and live locally.

The club ensures that all members of staff have a DBS certificate.
