Oakham School has its own 25-metre pool, suitable for advanced swimming coaching and gala competitions. We host galas on an annual basis with increasing success for our own team.

Swimming teams train hard with swimming coach Ian Gunter from the start of the Winter Term right through to the end of the Summer Term, when the majority of fixtures take place. The teams are increasingly successful, recording impressive results in fixtures against schools and at the annual independent school championships, the Bath and Otter Cup.

I joined Oakham in 2009 as the swimming coach, having previously worked at City of Leicester as a squad coach. I was also Head Coach at Melton Mowbray Swimming Club until October 2016. I am a level 3 ASA Coach. I have been lucky to have coached swimmers to podium places at County, Regional, National and Great British competitions over the years.
