Rook News Summer 2021

At Rookwood School, we have got a summer of fun planned, filled with a variety of activities to allow children to gain skills, discover new passions, and make lasting friendships. This summer, we are running Camp Rookwood, our holiday camp, from the 12th of July until the 20th of August. Additionally, Rookwood Swim will also be holding swimming lessons from the 12th of July until the 13th of August.

Rookwood Swim

Swimming lessons are open to children of all levels as classes will be adapted to suit different development stages. Our courses will last a week and will offer skills development for pre-school and beginners, as well as submerging, diving, and stroke improvement for those with some experience. The classes are 30 minutes each and are available from Monday to Friday between 11am and 2pm. Our pool is also available for private hire and use by Rookwood families.
