King Edward's swimming is coached by world record holder Hayley Bettinson. The team swimming training is mainly focused around fitness for the successful water polo team although there are several swimming competitions in which the school competes over the course of a year.
Despite the school's successes in the pool, swimming training is open for all age groups and abilities. For those who need extra help, lunchtime sessions can be organised. Swimming is also a key part of PE and games lessons.
