A partnership with the Amateur Swimming Association and Northampton Swimming Club, the Swimming Academy uses the new 25-metre pool at the college’s Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation Centre to allow students to develop their skills to a higher level while continuing with their education.

Students regularly compete in British Colleges Sport and ASA competitions and are also encouraged to gain a National Pool Lifeguarding qualification, as well as a first aid certificate, functional skills and Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, in order to improve their overall employability.
