SIS is delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new elite swimming programme aimed at swimmers who wish to focus on their sporting commitments without compromising their academic success.

The SIS Swimming Academy will build upon the school’s existing curricular and extracurricular swimming programmes to develop a high-performance pathway which will open up a wealth of opportunities for its athletes. SIS already offers Learn to Swim and Junior Squad programmes during term time, as well as Intensive Swim Camps throughout the school holidays.

In addition to the swimming provision students receive, we can now offer swimmers an extensive training schedule, which will provide twice-daily sessions up to 6 days a week. Coupled with the exceptional coaching and specialist facilities available at SIS, this additional support will provide athletes with the environment they need to develop and maximise their potential, enabling them to succeed at the very highest level.

"I believe Sam to be a swim coach who, with a holistic approach, helps develop the talents of her swimmers. Given her expertise and passion for the sport, I can only imagine where she will lead the soon-to-launch Elite Swim Programme at SIS. Sam is committed to providing individual attention to her swimmers and focuses on technique in order to drive down PB times as a result of stroke efficiency.

We are sincerely grateful to Sam and SIS for moving the mountain in our path.”

Important Info:

As a co-educational boarding school in Sotogrande, we are in the unique position of being able to offer a full academic programme alongside high-performance swimming, and our athletes benefit from training in warm weather all year round. Our on-site facilities include a 6-lane, 25 m heated, covered pool and an adjacent gymnasium so that the transition from training to the classroom is only a few steps.

Swimmers’ nutritional needs are fully catered for with our Cantina and Chiringuito, offering a selection of healthy meals and snacks throughout the day. Our younger students (years 7 to 11) follow a full MYP and our Diploma students have the option of a full IB programme or the IB Courses programme. Our swimming training schedule is integrated seamlessly into academic practice so there is no need for learners to compromise on their schooling or sports performance. We anticipate this programme will be one of the most comprehensive swimming academies available in a Spanish school.

We are thrilled to now be in a position to take the school to the very highest level of swimming with the launch of our new programme. As we establish ourselves as a national performance centre for swimming in Spain, we look forward to welcoming swimmers from all over the world to take part in our programme.
