Taunton School’s Head of Swimming Development, Graham Davidson, has recently been selected as one of the coaches on England’s Elite Swim Programme. 

Swim England’s Coach 2024 Programme is aimed at developing the next generation of elite swimming coaches and will support and mentor coaches who are working at the upper level of the England Talent Pathway.

Out of over 50 applicants, Graham was just one of 18 of the nation’s top coaches who was chosen to undertake the 14-month training which will further enhance his technical knowledge and enable him to gain more experience in high performance coaching.

Graham Davidson commented about the selection: “I am thrilled to have such a great opportunity to gain invaluable training with Swim England. It’s an honour to be able to learn from the best and I look forward to putting it into practice with our swimmers at Taunton School and Taunton Deane Swimming Club.”

Launching on 30 October, the elite Coach 2024 programme consists of a number of workshops and mentoring sessions that will help the coaches learn and absorb British Swimming and England Talent coaching principles into their daily coaching methods. 

Taunton School was founded in 1847 and is located in a Grade II-listed Gothic-style building. The 56-acre campus now houses the Nursery and Pre-Prep, the Preparatory School, the Senior School, Taunton School International Middle School and Taunton School International.

Taunton School encourages pupils to explore opportunities in sport, the arts and activities, developing life skills in order to learn characteristics such as leadership and teamwork.
