Additional Curriculum

Swimming at Red Gates

All children in Years 1 to 6 are given the opportunity to swim during the school year. Each class is allocated a term for weekly swimming sessions. Swimming lessons take place at West Wickham swimming pool and are led by our swimming teacher Gill Towns. Staff from your child’s class team also enter the water with the children to support. Swimming lessons are pitched at your child’s individual levels and skills range from developing water confidence to learning stroke techniques.

Horse Riding at Red Gates

All children in Year 6 are given the opportunity to horse ride (some restrictions such as weight do apply). Sessions take place every Friday afternoon at The Diamond Centre in Carshalton. Diamond provides therapeutic riding for children and adults with disabilities. As part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), The Diamond Centre exists to provide Red Gates children with the opportunity to ride at the level of their ability to benefit their health and well-being.
