We have our own swimming pool on site which is used as part of P.E. and games for all year groups and by a number of extra curricular clubs and societies such as swimming, water polo, rowing and scouts.

There would be around 25 boys actively involved in swimming and water polo in school.

We have had a number of swimming successes in recent years including Grammar Schools Overall Boys Champions, Irish Schools Relay Champions and winners of UK HMC Schools prestigious Bath and Otter Cups.

A number of our top swimmers represent the School at the UK WISE Games and are part of the Ulster Schools team for the annual Inter-pro with the other 3 Irish provinces.

We also have boys training with the Irish National Squad.

Swimming Updates January 2014

The RBAI Bath Cup team was selected last week after a very successful Ulster Schools Swimming Championships. The squad of Cai Armstrong, Jack McMillan, Sam Manley, Robert MCGibbon (Capt), Morgan Berryman and Robert McDowell won 17 individual and relay medals between them. These successes auger well for the Bath Cup and Otter Medley competitions this year. The team will travel to London in March to compete in this most prestigious competition which is to be held in the Olympic Pool at the Olympic Park.
